The Labyrinth of Solitude and Other Writings by Octavio PazOctavio Paz has long been acknowledged as Mexicos foremost writer and critic. In this international classic, Paz has written one of the most enduring and powerful works ever created on Mexico and its people, character, and culture. Compared to Ortega y Gassets The Revolt of the Masses for its trenchant analysis, this collection contains his most famous work, The Labyrinth of Solitude, a beautifully written and deeply felt discourse on Mexicos quest for identity that gives us an unequalled look at the country hidden behind the mask. Also included are The Other Mexico, Return to the Labyrinth of Solitude, Mexico and the United States, and The Philanthropic Ogre, all of which develop the themes of the title essay and extend his penetrating commentary to the United States and Latin America.
