Mexico agrees to begin the testamentary succession of the poet Octavio Paz

The cultural authorities of Mexico agreed to begin the testamentary succession of the poet Octavio Paz, whose legacy would have as its ultimate depository the National College, informed the Ministry of Culture of the Mexican capital.

The agreement to start the process was decided in a meeting with the Federal Ministry of Culture, the National Institute of Fine Arts (INBA), the National College and the Legal Counsel of the Government of Mexico City, said the institution in a statement.

The goal is that the heritage of Octavio Paz (1914-1998) "is part of our cultural heritage" so that it can be preserved and consulted "in the times that the poet himself has determined in his will," he said .

The cultural institution has indicated that the actions related to the will of the Nobel Prize for literature 1990 were taken after the recent death of the widow of the poet, Marie José Tramini and that will be a judge that determines the inexistence of a testament of the poet's widow.
