In Light of India

Front Cover
Rupa & Company, 1998 - Ambassadors - 224 pages
In 1951 Octavio Paz travelled to India to serve briefly as an attache in the Mexican Embassy. Eleven years later, he returned as Mexico s ambassador in which capacity he served for six years. In Light of India is Paz s celebration of this country and his most personal work of prose to date. As in all of his essays, he brings poetic insight and voluminous knowledge to bear on the subject; the result is a series of fascinating discourses on India s landscape, culture and history.
