Recommended for: People who love language
Read in August, 2008

I'm reading this in Spanish a little each night, out loud. The main point is to get better at pronouncing Spanish, move towards half fluency, but the poetry is a revelation. Someone like Paz shouldn't be a revelation, but I've never read his poetry. He plays with language in a way I never notice in Neruda, Borges and Garcia Lorca, the three Spanish-language poets I know the best.
