The writing of Mexican poet Octavio Paz (1914-1998) reflects a constant engagement with social questions of his time. His ideas about the role of intellectuals, politics, and the media are expressed in poems, essays, radio programs, and television. In this lecture, Professor Dorella will present some of the controversies that were generated by Pazs political position in the media.
Priscila Dorella is an Adjunct Professor of History and the Universidad de Viçosa in Brazil. She currently is a Visiting Scholar in the Department of History at UC Berkeley.
