well, "pure art" is a bit of a fallacy, is my point-- a fallacy that paz himself constructed.

piedra del sol however IS a magnificent poem; the rest of his work however leaves me meh. piedra del sol can be found here in spanish: http://amediavoz.com/paz.htm#PIEDRA%20DE%20SOL
the bilingual edition is here:
http://www.amazon.com/Sunstone-Piedr.../dp/0811211959
i have that edition actually, and the translation is adequate.

a better mexican poet that few people know however is jose gorostiza, "muerte sin fin" (maybe translatable as "death without end" ) is fucking mindblowing. again i don't know how it would translate into other languages, those verses inspired in the baroque... but for those who read spanish, jump in & tremble... http://omega.ilce.edu.mx:3000/sites/...htm/sec_5.html
