Interpretation of Octavio Paz’s Certainty

Writer:             Octavio Paz

Born:                1914

Nationality:     Mexican

The speaker meditates in the nature of reality. He is writing but doubts whether his hands, eyes and words are real. He realizes that all of them are unreal and uncertain and only the real thing is that he is living between the parentheses. Death is the only certainty he is referring to.

The speaker is obsessed with the death consciousness which Freud calls thanatos. He fears that he will die one day and he will be abandon from this life, his writing and his body. In this sense, the poem is the best example of the fear of abandonment.

Thank You
