    There really is no plot, but some wonderful descriptions. He also began to think that the artist should not be someone isolated and left to his art, but rather a man of the world, immersed in both politics and art. Unfortunately, no attempt is made to situate the analyses relative to current theoretical practices. I assure you, my friend, I carried this vision within me, and the vision of burning Carthage, too; but there was more, something more divine, more bestial; and it was the Present, the fullest, most exalted Present.

    I, however, am deeply affected by the affair, which would have remained the same even had Domitius shed bitter tears of sorrow over his wives. Short Story Books Review quote The dread of the coming dehumanization, the dread of the coming silence of humanity, the dread of human suffering that proclaimed itself everywhere, this precompassion lay deep within Hofmannsthal and made him more poetic than Joyce. His genius lay in imagination, in giving form, in finding his way into other human experiences and portraying them on stage. Hofmannsthal and Strauss founded the Salzburger Festspiele in together with theater director Max Reinhardt. Except in those cases where there is some form of documentable evidence, it is most likely impossible to determine with a reasonable degree of certainty why Hofmannsthal made a particular change and what, if any, specific source he was drawing upon. This essay was more than the revelation of a personal predicament; it has come to be recognized as symptomatic of the crisis that undermined the esthetic Symbolist movement of the end of the century.

    Their anticipation of mature experience and formal virtuosity seem incredible in one so young. A person of extraordinary grace and sensitivity, Hofmannsthal tried to make creative sense of the crises and catastrophes of the early twentieth century. Plato I avoided, for I dreaded the perilousness of his imagination. Hugo von Hofmannsthal was one of the great German writers of the twentieth century and a leading figure in Austrian intellectual life from the s until his death at the age of fifty-five.

Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1874

Hofmannsthal increasingly identified with and took responsibility for the fate of Austria during World War Iand he came to understand politics as a part of culture, tradition, and morality. I have troubled you excessively, my dear friend, with this extended description of an inexplicable condition which is wont, as a rule, to remain locked up in me.

We watch the development of these two sad things at the same time.

But it is my inner self that I feel Hugo von Hofmannsthal. book to reveal to you-a peculiarity, a vice, a disease of my mind, if you like-if you are to understand that an abyss equally unbridgeable separates me from the literary works lying seemingly ahead of me as from those behind me: the latter having become so strange to me that I hesitate to call them my property.

To reach his conclusions, Vilain analyses a number of Hofmannthal's poems and has carefully studied the poet's notes and correspondence as well as the perspectives of fellow writers who knew Hofmannstahl in the s.

Eventually in the heat of the summer he moved them all to his summer home where he would take long walks. I experienced an inexplicable distaste for so much as uttering the words spirit, soul, or body.

The idea of the total work of art increasingly appealed to him after the turn of the century, when he began to collaborate with the composer Richard Strauss in writing operas such as Der Rosenkavalier ; The cavalier of the rose.

It, too, forms whirlpools, but of a sort that do not seem to lead, as the whirlpools of language, into the abyss, but into myself and into the deepest womb of peace.

Even in familiar and humdrum conversation all the opinions which are generally expressed with ease and sleep-walking assurance became so doubtful that I had to cease altogether taking part in such talk.

And could I, if otherwise I am still the same person, have lost from my inner inscrutable self all traces and scars of this creation of my most intensive thinking-lost them so completely that in your letter now lying before me the title of my short treatise stares at me strange and cold?

This view held there were no universal timeless truths since all evidence is gathered by our senses and is thus contingent. Access options available:.

Even now, after weeks, catching sight of that nut-tree, I pass it by with a shy sidelong glance, for I am loath to dispel the memory of the miracle hovering there round the trunk, loath to scare away the celestial shudders that still linger about the shrubbery in this neighbourhood!

Vilain argues that Hofmannsthal's aware-ness of his debt to Symbolism produced an anxiety of influence that was stifling to his poetic identity, and despite Hofmannsthal's use of the Symbolist esthetic, he nevertheless remained separated from it.

Simple phonic consider-ations may have played a role, or the poet may have wanted to draw on non-classical traditions for other reasons. Ithaca, N.
