Octavio Paz

Old Poem Saturday – Boy and Top – Paz

boyandtopOctavio Paz’s long poetic career spanned a number of literary movements – existentialism, modernism, Marxist – but I am particularly drawn to his surrealist and ekphrastic work. I think of this short little poem affectionately like a clown car – the more you study it, the more imagery that keeps coming out. Collage and composition by me. Have a great weekend!
