FORMATS

Centered on 12 lovely collaborations between 1990 Nobel prize winner Octavio Paz (1914-1998) and his wife of 30 years, this book presents poems he wrote to accompany her full-color, neo-surrealist collages ("Calm," "Cloud Box," "Imperial Fireplace"). The gentle and satisfying collection is fleshed out with a section of the Spanish versions of the poems, a short prose piece by Octavio Paz, and an afterword by French poet Yves Bonnefoy. (Dec.)
