poet, translator
A nothing
we were, are, shall
remain, flowering:
the nothing--, the
no one's rose.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]
A poem, being an instance of language, hence essentially dialogue, may be a letter in a bottle thrown out to the sea with the-surely not always strong-hope that it may somehow wash up somewhere, perhaps on the shoreline of the heart. In this way, too, poems are en route: they are headed towards. Toward what? Toward something open, inhabitable, an approachable you, perhaps, an approachable reality. Such realities are, I think, at stake in a poem.More Paul Celan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
no one bears witness for the witnessMore Paul Celan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Only truthful hands write true poems. I cannot see any basic difference between a handshake and a poem.More Paul Celan quotes [09/28/2011 02:09:34]
