Octavio Paz



Age: 84


Summary: Mexican Nobel Prize-winning poet and essayist considered by many to be one of the greatest Latin American poets ever who produced over 40 volumes of poetry and essays throughout his long career, and who was at the center of some controversy, but he remained a cultural icon as his political conservatism often found him at odds with his intellectual peers.
