Abstract: Close readings of some of Octavio Paz’s longer poems dating from the period stretching from Piedra de sol (1957) to Pasado en claro (1975) illuminate a mnesic mechanism often used by this author. A place name, a date, a certain time of day, can act as catalysts, taking the poetic voice on a ‘temporal journey’. At the same time, this ‘I’ can change into a ‘we’. During the 1970s, the personal and intimate aspects of memory acquired collective, political, and moral overtones. Poetry became an intense expression of a crisis in consciousness, as well as a tool Paz used in his quest to salvage the ‘instant’ that lies outside of time, and that is lost and found through love, the presence of the beloved – until the edge of death.
