ABSTRACT
The article discusses the duality of the male other in the poetry of Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda. The author says that it is not just in the language but in the expressed nature of male other where duality appears in her poems. It becomes difficult to know from poet's explanation if she is speaking of a man or God particularly when she does not deliberately makes it clear. But the ambiguity in her writings could not be considered as unclear thinking, it should be dealt as a deliberate attempt and a closer look should be made into her writings. It also presents various sections of poet's work where ambiguity appears.
