    We are so involved in the particular chowder in which we are dog-paddling that we are unable to provide an accurate critique of what is happening to us. I have tried in my blogs to do so, but I must confess that I have my fingers on the scale and cannot always give good weight. That is when I turn to writers from Argentina, Europe, Russia, Asia, and Mexico who are able to see more clearly for the distance that separates us.Octavio Paz's Itinerary is an intellectual odyssey of sorts, in which the [...]

    Itinerario consiste de dos partes: "La Espiral" sirve como poscripto al Laberinto de la soledad de Paz; "Explicaciones" incorpora entrevistas en las cuales Paz opina sobre varios temas de índole política y social. La mayor parte del libro está dedicada a trazar el itinerario personal y filosófico de su autor, desde su juventud como poeta y fellow traveler izquierdista, a su eventual desilusión con el proyecto sovieta y lo que denomina "las ideologías".La obra tardía de Paz, como es repres [...]

    Octavio Paz’s Itinerary through space was varied: time in Spain (an educative time where he discovered Criticism), 10 years in the US, then post-war years in Paris, where he met the French giant writers of the time (Aragon, Eluard, Mauriac, Malraux, René Char and Sartre, to list a few), and finally some time in South East Asia as a diplomat.So this short book is rich of his diversified experience, in areas of philosophy, literature and politics.This led to what I would call a haunting questio [...]

    I'm reading this in Spanish - no facing page translation (a different edition from the one listed here, bought in a bookstore in Mexico, so maybe it doesn't sell elsewhere). It's interesting (I think) - personal essays about Paz's own experiences as an artist and politically involved person. I'm slogging through a lot of pages about fights between communists in the 1940s right now, and if I'm reading it right, Paz is more of a Trotskyite, but with definite religious and other less communistic sy [...]

    Not necessarily the best place to start for new readers of Octavio Paz, but a very interesting story of an intellectual/political/artistic journey through the tumultuous 20th century. Particularly as an assertion of a persistent critical activism, a committed position of critique, Paz is an exemplary figure, and these essays demonstrate why.

    Lo que podría considerarse el definitivo recuento de la vida de Octavio Paz, no es más que una compilación de sus dichos --muchas veces contradictorios o falsos-- que ya había expresado en otros textos o entrevistas. Así, la real biografía de nuestro Nobel, está por escribirse todavía.

    Itinerario es una fantástica reflexión no solo de la filosofía y política que ha marcado al escritor a lo largo de su vida sino también de las grandes cuestiones y las grandes preocupaciones del ser humano. Es un libro que te invita a pensar y que deja grandes frases marcadas.

    I first read this book between my junior and senior years of high school in summer 2002. I have taken it with me wherever I move since then. I periodically reopen it and always find something new.

    2017-12 - Itinerary: An Intellectual Journey. Octavio Paz (Author) 1999. 129 Pages. Nobel Prize winning Mexican Poet who wrote one of my favorite books, “The Labyrinth of Solitude.” Mostly I know Paz as an essayist rather than as a poet. This book talks about poetry but what it really is , is the personal intellectual journey of man in search of understanding of life. Perhaps this should be read before “The Labyrinth of Solitude”working from the one to the many. Paz expects his readers t [...]

    Written with experience, gained insight from someone with years of knowledge. More educational than listening to my grandparent give advice.
