Mexican Literature: Need suggestions, please

Recommended Posts

For world literature next year, I want something from Mexico.


Any suggestions? Novels, short stories, poetry or essays.


Right now, I am leaning toward something by Octavio Paz. If you can recommend a particular work by Octavio Paz or would like to suggest a different author, I am open to ideas.

The Death of Artemio Cruz by Carlos Fuentes might be a good choice. It's sort of a Mexican Citizen Kane. It covers a lot of modern Mexican history, it's relatively short and it's definitely considered a modern classic. It's got adult content so you might want to preread.
