One of the great thinkers of the twentieth century has some of his finest art, culture and literary criticism collected here for the first time. A Nobel laureate, Octavio Paz's lucid poetry has been translated by such luminaries as Mark Strand, Elizabeth Bishop, and Samuel Beckett, while his work as a diplomat earned him the German Peace Prize late in life. His extraordinary essays, however, have rarely been gathered in one place. In Conjunctions and Disjunctions (2005), he explores the duality of human nature in all its variations in cultures around the world. In Marcel Duchamp (2005), he conveys his awareness of Duchamp as a great cautionary figure in our culture, warning us with jest and quiet scandals of the menacing encroachment of criticism, science and even art (New York Times Book Review). In Alternating Current (2005), Paz, with poetic prose and intellectual vigor, displays his determination to bring the world to Mexico and perhaps even Mexico to the world (New York Times Book Review). On Poets and Others (2005) is a true artist's brilliant criticism on sixteen fellow poets. The Monkey Grammarian (1990) is a dazzling exploration of time and reality, ?xity and decay, and the origin of language. This beautifully bound collector's edition is an essential collection for both the classroom and the personal library.

The Tropics Bite Back: Culinary Coups in Caribbean Literature
The ubiquitous presence of food and hunger in Caribbean writing-from folktales, fiction, and poetry to political and historical treatises-signals the traumas that have marked the Caribbean from the Middle Passage to the present day. The Tropics Bite Back traces the evolution of the Caribbean response to the colonial gaze (or rather the colonial mouth) from the late nineteenth century to the twenty-first. Unlike previous scholars, Valerie Loichot does not read food simply as a cultural trope. Instead, she is interested in literary cannibalism, which she interprets in parallel with theories of relation and creolization. For Loichot, the culinary is an abstract mode of resistance and cultural production. The Francophone and Anglophone authors whose works she interrogates-including Patrick Chamoiseau, Suzanne Cesaire, Aime Cesaire, Maryse Conde, Edwidge Danticat, Edouard Glissant, Lafcadio Hearn, and Dany Laferriere- bite back at the controlling images of the cannibal, the starved and starving, the cunning cook, and the sexualized octoroon with the ultimate goal of constructing humanity through structural, literal, or allegorical acts of ingesting, cooking, and eating. The Tropics Bite Back employs cross-disciplinary methods to rethink notions of race and literary influence by providing a fresh perspective on forms of consumption both metaphorical and material.
