La llama doble by Octavio Paz

El tema - la relación entre la sexualidad, el erotismo y el amor - es fascinante. Pero las ideas filosóficas de Paz son bastante superfluas, a pesar de su destreza retórica como ensayista. Reduce, por definición literaria, el amor al "amor cortés" de ...more

La prosa austera con destellos poéticos es coherente con la sutileza trágica de los relatos. El cuento "Paso del Norte" mantiene vigencia al tratar los movimientos de migración rural mesoamericana a los Estados Unidos. Los cuentos "Es que somos muy p ...more

At the heart of this tragedy is a beautiful love story. Its description includes some of the most touching passages on the erotic-romantic love between a man and a woman, or simply between two people, that I have ever read.

“As for me, I certainly have not suffered like Du Bois, his black predecessors and contemporaries, or most of my immigrant predecessors or contemporaries. Still I feel that I have not been able to convey to most of my friends, colleagues, or acquaintances this process of immigrating as I have lived, experienced, and witnessed it. I have seen through the Veil into their world, but they have not seen into mine. And I feel that now, more than ever, we are in need of sympathy and mutual understanding.”
Daniel G. Campos, Loving Immigrants in America: An Experiential Philosophy of Personal Interaction

“What emerged for me as purpose was the search for and cultivation of possibilities for experiencing meaningful human transactions in different languages and across cultural differences through play, sports, travel, food, literature, and conversation. I sought to establish relations of mutual understanding and love with people no matter what their culture or place of origin in the world—relations based on philia, eros, and agape, according to context and persons. I perhaps sensed instinctively that such relations were the key to being equally at home everywhere, even in la Yunai. More than an immigrant, at that time I still felt myself to be a sojourner in this country, but I wanted my sojourn to be imbued with the meaning found in earnest, sincere connections with the people and places that life brought to my experience.”
