9780151704491: The Other Voice: Essays on Modern Poetry

In seven elegant essays that range across centuries and literature, the 1990 Nobel Laureate offers his thoughts on how modern poetry came to be, what makes it" modern, " and what it may become. With grace and authority Paz explores Romanticism, Symbolism, and Surrealism and defines the role epic and allegorical poems have played in our collective history. Paz ultimately extols poetry for its humanizing, healing quality - "Between revolution and religion, poetry is the "other" voice...because it is the voice of the passions and of visions" - and in doing so reveals much about himself, poet, modernist, visionary.
