En el centenario del nacimiento de Octavio Paz (1914-1998), Premio Nobel de 1990 y figura de proa de la literatura mexicana del siglo XX, la Cámara de Diputados de México ha creado un sitio de homenaje al autor, en:


Este sitio abarca una impresionante colección de materiales relativos al gran poeta y ensayista (biografía, artículos críticos, reseñas, entrevistas, etc).

Me es grato informar que en la página « Reseñas »:


hay un vínculo:

a un texto de mi autoría de 1995 sobre Octavio Paz, en la cual reseñé su libro del mismo año acerca de la cultura de la India, país donde fue embajador de México, ‘Vislumbres de la India’. Estoy, evidentemente, muy agradecido a quien colocó ese enlace, que me permite ser partícipe en las conmemoraciones del centenario del inolvidable poeta mexicano.

Octavio Paz Vislumbres de la India


2014 marks the birth centenary of Octavio Paz (1914-1998), the 1990 Nobel laureate and standard-bearer for Mexican literature in the 20th century. In commemoration, the Mexican Chamber of Deputies (lower house of the national parliament) has created a site paying homage to the writer, at:


This site (in Spanish only) brings together an impressive collection of material on the great poet and essayist (biography, critical artícles, reviews, interviews, etc).

I am pleased to note that the page « Reseñas » (« Reviews »):


includes a link:

to a text (in Spanish) of my authorship from 1995 on Octavio Paz, in which I reviewed his book of the same year on the culture of India, where he served as Mexico’s ambassador, ‘Vislumbres de la India’ (‘In Light of India’). I am of course most grateful to those who created this link, which enables me to be a participant in the commemorations of the centenary of the unforgettable Mexican poet.

NB – My review of Paz’s book is also available in English at: http://yatrarollason.info/files/PazEN.pdf
