Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high! ...But you don't have to take my, or Lamar Burton's, word for it. Just take a look, it's in a book.

The Labyrinth of Solitude: The Other Mexico, Return to the Labyrinth of Solitude, Mexico and the United States, the Philanthropic Ogre

The Labyrinth of Solitude and Other Writings - Octavio Paz, Lysander Kemp, Yara Milos Most of the time I kept wondering what Mexicans today think about this work, as the text felt a little dated, especially Paz's brief mention of/about women (pages 66 & 197. There were small parts I liked, such as on pages: 184, 186, 208, 222, 228, 291 and 375, but I made the mistake of reading the last 200 pages (out of 400) in a day and a half. At a certain point, it felt like Paz was repeating himself rather than bringing up alot of new points with the "Other Writings." Worth reading all the same.
