The Labyrinth of Solitude

Winner of the 1990 Nobel Prize for Literature, this is Mexican poet and essayist Octavio Paz's analysis of his country's history and psyche and of United States-Mexican relations. This enlarged edition of "The Labyrinth of Solitude" contains the new texts that complete the book and bring it up to date. These include "The Other Mexico" which, written in response to the government massacre of three hundred students in the plaza of Tlatelolco in Mexico City, is at once a postscript and a revision of "The Labyrinth of Solitude","Mexico and the United States" and "The Philanthropic Ogre". "Return to the Labyrinth of Solitude", is an interview with Claude Fell in which Paz takes a new look at his work.
