Descriptive Answer Type (Marks 5)
1. What is the central idea of the poem ‘Brotherhood’?
Ans:- Brotherhood is a short poem composed by Octavio Paz. The Poem is not about brothers or nationalism. It is about the search of a man’s position in the universe. The poem exposes the insignificance of a human being in relation to the vast universe. The post stands under the night sky and discovers the vastness of the universe around him. The poet feels that there is an everlasting bond between man and universe. Man is very small in comparison to the universe. He has very little
knowledge of the world around him. There is a greater force to which runs all the universe. He is unable to understand that supreme force. He has an ability but he cannot explain it with logic.
The poet understands that his life is predestined. The stars in the sky writes the destiny of a man. The poet finds himself very in significant in compare to the universe. But his place is important like all. Every life has a role to play in the universe. So, the universe would be a different place without one of us.
