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 Paz’s political position in the media.
