About the author (1971)

Like most Latin American writers, Homero Aridjis has had to resort to journalism for financial support while creating a body of poetry that becomes more impressive with each volume. He is basically a poetry of the search for love and the love relationship, and through this relationship, of the search for value and meaning. Love and poetry thus become almost interchangeable, since poetry is also a unique source of knowledge. Exaltation of Light extends this approach to other areas of human experience, and to the ever present Aztec past, so that the Mexican experience becomes a metaphor for humankind's pursuit of life. Aridjis enjoys current prominence as an important environmental spokesperson in Mexico City, a city of enormous ecological problems.
