AGUAYO RODRIGUEZ, Eduardo. Octavio Paz and the accident as world’s image. Alpha [online]. 2011, n.33, pp. 43-53. ISSN 0718-2201. doi: 10.4067/S0718-22012011000200004.
The article deals with the notion of accident from a wide point of view integrating philological, philosophical and historical data. The meaning of accident is analyzed according to the image of the world in the post-industrialized societies, from a set of theorical reflexions developed by Octavio Paz during the 60’s; finally, there is a brief discussion about the possible connections between the notion of accident and the hispanic literacy production in the 20th century, specifically in the field of narrative.
