Paul Celan

Paul Celan

poet, translator
Reachable, near and not lost, there remained in the midst of the losses this one thing: language. It, the language, remained, not lost, yes, in spite of everything. But it had to pass through its own answerlessness, pass through frightful muting, pass through the thousand darknesses of deathbringing speech. It passed through and gave back no words for that which happened; yet it passed through this happening. Passed through and could come to light again, “enriched” by all this.More Paul Celan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
He speaks truly who speaks the shade.More Paul Celan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Reality is not simply there, it does not simply exist: it must be sought out and won.More Paul Celan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Read! Read all the time, the understanding will come by itself.More Paul Celan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There was earth inside them, and they dug.More Paul Celan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
