More About This Title Zócalo


In his last trip to Mexico, the poet Adonis strolls through the streets of Mexico City, noticing the unique sounds, smells, colors, and the vibrant light being reflected in every house. It is those rooms within those houses that Adonis feels old images unfolding, answering his intuitions about the Maya, Nahua, and other inhabitants of this metropolis. Zócalo is the count-memory of the poet making his last trip to the city. A place full of nostalgia, this story will enlighten readers on the history of Mexico as well as the poet.


Adonis is a well-known Arabic poet. He is the author of Primeros poemas, Hojas a l viento, Canciones de Mihyar el de Damasco, Este es mi nombre, and many others.
