I've been trying to read more widely, and share my enthusiasms at poetry readings. I try to read an original before an English translation and I like to credit (and critique) translators. But I've been having difficulty finding information on Octavio Paz in English, particularly one well-known poem. I normally manage better than this. Perhaps I'm asking the wrong questions?

Can anyone in this com point me towards an original of "No More Cliches"? Is there a translator in addition to Paz? Or was it originally in English? Is this "translation" so far from an original that it shows few resemblances? Help, please?

(My Spanish comprehension is non-existent, sorry.)
