About this work:This book has its origins in the admiration that Octavio Paz feels for the work of Marie José, and in his desire to pay homage to it by showing the very real similarities in their creative impulses. Inspired by a series of constructions or box-collages, Octavio Paz wrote ten poems which recreate the Marie José's artistic universe and which have remained unpublished up to now. She, in turn, constructed two pieces inspired by two short poems of his. Thus, each poetic composition has an intimate link with the work which accompanies it. The result is this profound, intense dialogue between love, poetry and art, underpinned by the complicity that has arisen through their long, shared life. Entertainment and discovery, the counterpoint that gives this book life, rewrites the history of a passion that expresses itself through poetry and art.
