To set up a limit is a dual gesture, at once instituting diï¬ erence and indi-cating a point of contact. Martin Heideggerâs critique of the discipline of poetics, a recurrent feature throughout his long engagement with poetry, is just such a gesture. On the one hand, he claims that his own readings of poems or ErlÃ¤uterungen (âsoundings-outâ) can articulate aspects of these ...

In the introductory remarks to his lecture series on Friedrich HÃ¶lderlinâs late hymns âGermanienâ and âDer Rhein,â the fi rst he gave on HÃ¶lder-linâs poetry, Heidegger discusses the opening lines of âGermanienâ and their form: âTh e form of the poem provides no particular diï¬ culties.

In âTh e Origin of the Work of Art,â Heidegger situates the earth in the âwork-materialâ of the artwork: âthe massiveness and heaviness of the stone, . . . the fi rmness and fl exibility of the wood, . . . the lightening and darkening of color . . . the ringing of sound, and the naming power of the wordâ (OBT ïºï¼/ï»ï½). Th at Heidegger should place âthe wordâ last ...

Ever since Max Kommerell described an essay of Heideggerâs on HÃ¶lder-linâs âAndenkenâ as âa productive train-wreckâ (ein productives Eisenbahn-UnglÃ¼ck),ï Heideggerâs readings of poetry have been subject to a critical skepticism bordering at times on outrage. To an extent this is unsurprising and even, one feelsâin the light of his contempt for âthe history of litera-...

At the end of the last chapter I observed that Heideggerâs readings of poetry are not exegeses but preservations, and moreover, that these preservations become genuine encounters with the poems they read only when they are themselves unable to gauge the shape of this encounter. Th is led to a para-doxical situation in which Heideggerâs readings are most compelling when ...
