President Evo Morales: Octavio Paz was born on March 31, 1914 in the village of Mixcoac which is now a part of Mexico City. As a teenager in 1931, under the influence of D.H.

And in 1990, Octavio Paz was awarded the "Nobel Prize for Literature." Octavio Paz was, and still is loved by the People of Mexico, and around our World today with his poems and literature.
