    "With Octavio Paz's death it is the end of the age of the intellectual as master of his era..." Christopher Dominguez Michael
    A TRIBUTE TO OCTAVIO PAZ (1914-1998) took place in New York City at The National Arts Club in April 5, 1998. It was organized by distinguished writers, intellectuals, translators, and editors to remember the leading Mexican poet Winner of the 1990 Nobel Prize for Literature.

    Speakers included poet Homero Aridjis (PEN International), Peter Glassgold (New Directions), Roberto Gonzalez-Echeverria (Yale University) with dance performance by Iloy Ibarra (Ballet Fiesta Mexicana); a poetry reading from Octavio Paz works by Mauricio Bustamante, Annie Kozuch, Carla Nakatani Martinez & Carlos E. Navedo; and film footage of Paz courtesy of The Lannan Foundation. Manhattan School of Music presented arias from "Rappaccini's Daughter", an opera in Spanish by Daniel Catan based on a play by Octavio Paz with a video of "Rappaccini's Daughter" starring Vincent Price from "Twice-Told Tales" (MGM,1968) and Henry Fonda's film version (1980)

    Octavio Paz was born in Mexico City in 1914 and in 2014 Centennial celebrations around the world will pay homage to him. Author of poetry, essays, political writing, and literary criticism, Octavio Paz travelled around the world and lived in New York, Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco, and New Delhi. He translated Basho, Nerval, Mallarme, Pessoa, Apollinaire, e.e.Cummings and William Carlos William. He included international writers in his literary publications: Sartre, Bunuel, Neruda, Ortega y Gasset, Gide, Camus and Breton as well as such figures as Borges, Kundera, Milosz, and Brodsky. He wrote about the works of Marcel Duchamp, Robert Rauschenberg, Joan Miro, Roberto Matta and Levi-Strauss, among many others. On a Guggenheim fellowship, he traveled to the United States in 1944 and was the Charles Eliot Norton Professor of Poetry at Harvard in 1971 - 1972.
