Transcript of Wind, Water, Stone

Wind, Water, Stone
Wind, Water, Stone
Viento, Agua, Piedra
El agua horada la piedra,
el viento dispersa el agua,
la piedra detiene al viento.
Agua, viento, piedra.

El viento esculpe la piedra,
la piedra es copa del agua,
el agua escapa y es viento.
Piedra, viento, agua.

El viento en sus giros canta,
el agua al andar murmura,
la piedra inmóvil se calla.
Viento, agua, piedra.

Uno es otro y es ninguno:
entre sus nombres vacíos
pasan y se desvanecen
agua, piedra, viento.

Octavio Paz caught slippin'
My Interpertation
I think that "Wind, Water, Stone" by Octavio Paz is about how nature will always have a effect on everything. Wind changes the water and how stone is water and how wind is water. It could actually mean a lot of things because if you actually read it the water, wind and stone could be a symble for some other meaning. I don't know?!?!?!
Actual Interpertation
It's pointing out the interconnectivity of everything and that these "seperate" elements really aren't that seperate.
That the water, wind and stone can not live without eachother.

Period 1

The water hollowed the stone,
the wind dispersed the water,
the stone stopped the wind.
Water and wind and stone.

The wind sculpted the stone,
the stone is a cup of water,
The water runs off and is wind.
Stone and wind and water.

The wind sings in its turnings,
the water murmurs as it goes,
the motionless stone is quiet.
Wind and water and stone.

One is the other and is neither:
among their empty names
they pass and disappear,
water and stone and wind.
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.
