One thought on “The Bow and the Lyre: The Poem, the Poetic Revelation, Poetry and History

  1. julieta

    Puro disfrute con este libro Es emocionante y apasionado, no me sorprende ya que paz dedic toda su vida a la poes a Me encanta que ponga a los poetas en el lugar de magos, que la poes a est fuera del tiempo, m s cercana a los mitos y a la religi n Pasa por los distintos elementos lenguaje, ritmo, inspiraci n , por el surrealismo, los distintos estilos de poes a heroica y lo que representan mis favoritos son los griegos, pero tambi n pasa por los isabelinos, espa oles, alemanes Despu s pasa por l [...]

    Paz s sweeping analysis covers all the great subjects of poetry and reasons why we write poetry Mythos and original religiosity, revolutionary ethos, status as exile or social outcast, et al His prose is hypnotic and elliptical, or else it runs in circles and his point can occasionally be difficult to decipher orrcular Still Paz is an autodidact for sure, and his massive knowledge of all things human, ancient, rational, or irrational provides an entertaining basis for this study of poetics It is [...]

    Libro de mierda que no termin ni pienso terminar Lo que deber a ser un ensayo sobre la poes a y que calculo te ayudar a a pensar sobre el tema es una acumulaci n torpe de frases asertivas sobre qu es y qu deber a ser la poes a La poes a es esto, la poes a es lo otro, blabla Demasiado seguro de s mismo, demasiado langa, demasiado grasa.

  4. Suellen Rubira

    25 06 O Octavio Paz nos faz ver que o po tico n o est em um g nero, mas em uma vis o de mundo E coloca a imagina o como fundamento da raz o e n o a pretensa soberania da raz o sobre todas as outras atividades mentais Al m disso, n o apenas o poema, mas o drama e o romance tamb m passam por seu exame Um livro eterno Considero esse livro um tratado po tico, panorama geral da situa o da poesia em tempos de mito e em tempos de total solid o dos poetas Octavio Paz discorre levemente sobre o assunto, [...]

  5. Danae

    Este libro es una hendija espacio de dulce violencia en que el mundo consciente y la consciencia subjetiva del mundo se amalgaman para inmediatamente fundirse y fundirnos en una nica verdad conciliadora en la inspiraci n que disuelve la antinomia original el yo y su otredad y nos permite tolerar la existencia Un rato m s Sin tanta zozobra Muy recomendable para los j venes poetas.

  6. Alba

    This is just that kind of book that you have to read and read and read in than a week You have to sit down and concentrate, and after that, let it go for a while, and go for it again and again It s that kind of book to me at least it is So I will come back for it later.

  7. Octavio Diaz

    Mas que un ensayo, una reflexion poetica sobre la poesia A veces Paz se pierde en sus juegos de palabras Dificil a veces de seguir Su reflexion sobre otros poetas y poemas extraordinaria El ensayo Los Signos en Rotacion de lo mejor.

  8. Víctor Sampayo

    Un libro de ensayos acerca de la poes a escrito asimismo con tono po tico Toda una experiencia leerlo.

  9. Misael

    Es un libro, que a mi parecer, tiene altibajos Pero vamos poniendo algunas cosas claras Poes a y Poema , La imagen , Los signos en rotaci n y Whitman, poeta de Am rica son ensayos maravillosos, llenos de fuerza en la prosa y que tocan tem ticas importantes para la reflexi n po tica.Aunque ah es donde pienso se encuentra el problema, este libro se piensa como una reflexi n po tica sobre la poes a y eso hace que en muchas ocasiones se pierda el hilo del ensayo A n con todo eso, siempre es interesa [...]

  10. Beatriz Mangualde

    This is a very good book for those who have interest in linguistic, poetry, art and philosophy With a good writing, you can read it in a few days without noticing The author reminds me of Einstein in the Negerplastik book where the african sculptures are understood as autonomous creations without being necessarily an instrument for art or history, but a whole new creation that causes estrangement to the viewer.

  11. Adriana

    I read this book in Spanish for my literature studies class At the time, there were no copies of this book available for sale in Brazil, so we had to take turns borrowing it from the library I was glad when I was able to purchase a Mexican edition of it in the US when I was living there It s an amazing book to understand poetry, unlike any other theory of literature books I have read It is at the same time instructive and poetic.

  12. Alan

    Lo recomiendo no para quien busque un manual de t cnica po tica, sino m s bien para quien se haya percatado del lugar de la labor del poeta en el mundo actual Para la sociedad contempor nea la poes a no existe, y pese a que Octavio Paz ahond en el tema hace ya cincuenta a os, sus reflexiones siguen siendo vigentes Este es un libro que exige dedicaci n pero que entrega mucho m s.

  13. Pax Analog

    This book bursts out of the gate from the very first page with a high vocational sense of poetics as the true religion It, in tandem with The Ever Present Origin, helps implement a stance toward the creative process that is deeply enlightening.

  14. J G

    I love this book You could read it over and over for the rest of your life and get something new out of it each time Poetry is so much than what it is thought to be Great book Thank you Paz

  15. Francisco Ortiz

    Puede escribirse un ensayo sobre poes a Dif cil, Dif cil de leer, pero 100% recompensado el esfuerzo Me lo le a los 17 a os y no me lo leer a a los 35.

  16. Pablo Del

    Este ensayo resulta inconmensurable Aborda diferentes aspectos de la poes a desde las diferencias entre poes a y poema, pasando por el lenguaje, ritmo e imagen, el fen meno de la inspiraci n, y su concepci n a lo largo de la historia, y otros como el concepto de otredad , por citar solo algunos En definitiva un libro delicioso, que apenas se hace farragoso a pesar de la profundidad de algunos pasajes, y que resulta casi de obligada lectura para los amantes de la gran poes a.

  17. Heberquijano

    La summa po tica de Octavio Paz, con eso tintes casi m stico que l ve a en la poes a relectura, pa clase
