OCTAVIO PAZ ~ IS MODERN THINKING WIDE AWAKE?

“Modern man likes to pretend that his thinking is wide-awake. But this wide-awake thinking has led us into the mazes of a nightmare in which the torture chambers are endlessly repeated in the mirrors of reason.”

Octavio Paz
The labyrinth of Solitude

Mexican writer 1914-1998

    and the torture of reason is repeatedly reflected by mirrors of the thinking… Octavio Paz is one of those intellectuals and writters that have made much for universal culture and the literature in spanish language… reading his verses and his critical studies is always a delicious trip to the joy and the knowledge… thank you my Niki <3<3<3
