Octavio Paz Counterparts
By Octavio Paz
In my body you search the mountain
for the sun buried in its forest.
In your body I search for the boat
adrift in the middle of the night. Structure-free verse
Translation into English
Imagery of someone inside his own body searching
Paz repeats/emphasizes the word search (for counterparts)
Poem made up of sentences The poem refers to a search for counterparts
Our counterpart is our soul mate
Search is internal
Must find self in order to find counterparts
The soul mate is "fate" so we must know our true identity. (emotionally) Counterparts
By Tommy Mampieri
Within myself, I search for you
Mountain over forest
Day after day
I search for my equal and opposite,
I know you are out there
I know I will find you
But I don’t know who you are
I don’t know where to look
But I will find you some day
When I escape the forest with sparkling partial sun
When I enter the meadow and the sun is
Unobstructed and eternally shining its love upon me I used the same name and topic
The search for oneself and the search for one’s counterpart
Started with “Within myself, I search for you”.
Illustrated similar setting
Can be added to the end of Paz's poem Deep and emotional meanings of poems
Very concise-words are selectively chosen
He struggled to find himself because he was biracial
He was unique, amazing, and special Paz studied at the National University of Mexico (1932-1937) 1970-1971 was the Simón Bolívar Professor of Latin American Studies at Cambridge University He wrote a collection of poems called:
