— Choice Reviews
This is an important book that will be of interest both to students of Latin American literature and to readers concerned with significant trends in contemporary political thought. Grenier develops a powerful new reading of the work of Octavio Paz; at the same time, he uses Paz's writings as a springboard for a broad meditation on the boundaries of liberal thought and the linkages between art and politics. From Art to Politics is by far the best book available in any language on Paz's essayistic work.
