El lugar de México en el mundo según Octavio Paz. La comprensión de la etapa virreinal
The place of Mexico in the world according to Octavio Paz. An understanding of the viceregal stage
Octavio Paz’s position in the history of Mexico and the formation of its identity has shaped, to a large extent, public opinion, yet there are aspects that are rather unknown. His reflection on the Christian contribution of the Spanish presence is often overlooked, as well as the very nature of the viceroyalty and the integration of the various components of that society. The paper consists basically of bringing together the thoughts of Paz, scattered in writings of very different times, that show these neglected positions.
