Octavio Paz
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1990
Octavio Paz was born in 1914 in Mexico City. On his father's side, his grandfather was a prominent liberal intellectual and one of the first authors to write a novel with an expressly Indian theme. Thanks to his grandfather's extensive library, Paz came into early contact with literature. Like his grandfather, his father was also an active political journalist who, together with other progressive intellectuals, joined the agrarian uprisings led by Emiliano Zapata.
Paz began to write at an early age, and in 1937, he travelled to Valencia, Spain, to participate in the Second International Congress of Anti-Fascist Writers. Upon his return to Mexico in 1938, he became one of the founders of the journal, Taller (Workshop), a magazine which signaled the emergence of a new generation of writers in Mexico as well as a new literary sensibility. In 1943, he travelled to the USA on a Guggenheim Fellowship where he became immersed in Anglo-American Modernist poetry; two years later, he entered the Mexican diplomatic service and was sent to France, where he wrote his fundamental study of Mexican identity, The Labyrinth of Solitude

Octavio Paz
Translations by Eliot Weinberger
  • Touch Sunstone (fragments) Between Going and Staying Brotherhood
  • Touch My hands open the curtains of your being clothe you in a further nudity uncover the bodies of your body My hands invent another body for your body
    Sunstone (fragments) a crystal willow, a poplar of water,
    a tall fountain the wind arches over,
    a tree deep-rooted yet dancing still,
    a course of a river that turns, moves on,
    doubles back, and comes full circle,
    forever arriving:
    the calm course
    of the stars or an unhurried spring,
    water with eyes closed welling over
    with oracles all night long,
    a single presence in a surge of waves, wave after wave till it covers all, a reign of green that knows no decline, like the flash of wings unfolding in the sky, (...) I travel your body, like the world, your belly is a plaza full of sun, your breasts two churches where blood performs its own, parallel rites, my glances cover you like ivy, you are a city the sea assaults, a stretch of ramparts split by the light in two halves the color of peaches

    • Only now have I understood that there was a secret relationship between what I have called my expulsion from the present and the writing of poetry. Poetry is in love with the instant and seeks to relive it in the poem, thus separating it from sequential time and turning it into a fixed present. But at that time I wrote without wondering why I was doing it. I was searching for the gateway to the present: I wanted to belong to my time and to my century. A little later this obsession became a fixed idea: I wanted to be a modern poet. My search for modernity had begun.

Octavio Paz: When I was young I took as my own a motto of Andre Gide: The writer must know how to swim against the current. This motto is valid for every person. R/S: Do you think THE REBEL (by Albert Camus) has retained its force? OP: I met Camus when he was writing 'L'Homme Revolte.' Actually, to translate 'revolte' as 'rebel' is not entirely exact. In the word 'revolt' there are shades and meanings that don't appear in 'rebellion.' In ALTERNATING CURRENT I tried to show the different senses of rebellion, revolt, and revolution. Rebellion is a term of military origin and has an individualist cast; Revolution and Revolt are sister terms but Revolution is more intellectual, a philosophical term, while Revolt is older and more spontaneous. Revolution is revolt converted into theory and system. Camus' book would have meant much more if he had made a more precise distinction between the ancient and healthy revolt and the modern revolution.

    Octavio Paz (1914-1998) "I travel your length
    like a river
    I travel your body
    like a forest."

    (from 'Piedra de sol') Octavio Paz was born in Mexico City. His grandfather was a novelist and his father worked as a secretary to Emiliano Zapata. When Zapata was driven into retreat and assassinated, the family lived in exile in the United States for a short time. After the return to Mexico, Paz studied law and literature at the National University, but refused to take his degree. However, from his youth Paz's ambition was to be a poet. Encouraged by Pablo Neruda , Paz started to write. From 1933 he published over 40 books. Paz's first collection was LUNA SILVESTRE (1933). already in Mexico in the 1930s and experimented with automatic writing. However, Paz's expression was never uncontrolled. "Poetry lets us touch the impalpable," he wrote in The Double Flame (1993), "and hear the tide of silence that covers a landscape devastated by insomnia."

    1998 witnessed the passing of such diverse figures as Frank Sinatra, legendary boxer Archie Moore, two-term Florida Governor Lawton Chiles, cowboy star and entrepreneur Gene Autry, and Clayton ("Peg Leg") Bates, the one-legged tap dancer who was so skilled with a wooden limb that he forged a career (including twenty appearances on the Ed Sullivan show) that lasted from the 1920s to 1989. It also witnessed the passing of Octavio Paz, the protean Mexican writer who won the Nobel Prize in 1990 and who was as noted for ideological integrity as for literary talent. In 1968, after the student massacre at Tlatelolco, Paz angrily resigned as Mexican ambassador to India. Paz was born in Mexico City on March 31, 1914. His father, Octavio Paz Solórzano, was a lawyer who supported Zapata during the Mexican Revolution and made notable contributions in the area of agrarian reform. His grandfather, Ireneo Paz, was a journalist during Porfirian times who rallied to the standard of Madero. Intellectually precocious and having access to his grandfather's extensive library, Paz was a voracious reader his entire life. After studies in Mexico, he received a scholarship to study Hispanic poetry in the United States.
