Although poetry is not my forte and and have always been wary of my own capabilities of even writing on poets and poetry I have always found myself making Octavio Paz an exception. I have, therefore, written a longish review of "On Poets and Others" as a blog on my blog-post.

I am giving below a link to my blog that speaks on Octavio Paz and his "On Poets and Others".

Paz's mind is keener than so many. Keener, likely, than mine. Many times I was reduced to diagramming his statements, for a hint at his underlying meaning. Don't expect this to be an easy read, but except that if you put in the work, it will be an edifying read.
Tammy Marie Jacintho
A must read for anyone who wants to know the intimate details of a brilliant mind. These essays on Frost, Whitman, Williams, Sartre and so many others, extend the literature. I fell in love with Paz from page one and that admiration only deepened.
