Se cumplen ahora 10 años de la muerte de Octavio Paz, poeta y ensayista de ineludible referencia en la historia universal de la literatura y el pensamiento del siglo XX. La Sociedad Estatal de Conmemoraciones Culturales, el Hay Festival y Círculo de Lectores, la editorial de su obra completa, han querido honrar al Nobel mexicano con una doble sesión, que bajo el lema común de ‘Alguien me deletrea’, tomado de uno de sus versos, evocará la indeleble huella de su obra y su gravitación sobre el presente. Con este motivo se presenta también el volumen de carácter conmemorativo ‘Alguien me deletrea. Un decenio sin Octavio Paz’, publicado por Galaxia Gutenberg/Círculo de Lectores, y que coordinado por Aurelio Major reúne el testimonio sobre Octavio Paz de varias decenas de escritores y poetas. En la primera sesión dedicada al ensayo de Octavio Paz participarán el escritor Juan Goytisolo, el poeta y ensayista Andrés Sanchéz Robayna, y el historiador y critico literario Christopher Dominguez, quien fue miembro del consejo de redacción de la revista Vuelta en conversación con el editor Aurelio Major.

An ambitious couple open the island’s most spectacular hotel, where Greek and Turkish Cypriots work in harmony. When a Greek coup plunges the island into chaos, Cyprus faces a disastrous conflict. Turkey invades to protect the Turkish Cypriot minority, and Famagusta is shelled. Forty thousand people seize their most precious possessions and flee from the advancing soldiers.
