I went to a lecture/ concert at the music conservatory in Morelia: classical European music. Every seat in the hall was taken by students; it may have been mandatory. Coming from NE US you notice the earnestness of the students. There were no jaded attitudes or detachment. The students walked out intensely discussing the lecture and humming different parts of the music performance to each other.

Mexican poetry is diverse but the intense spiritual quest many people still document is shocking to US readers accustomed to readings of 'shallow irony, punch line, pop culture reference, modernism reference, political buzz phrase, punch line, shallow irony..' The classics poets through mid-20C are predominantly spiritual.
