Something like “shard-poems” are tendered. The imagery seems intentionally half-formed, as if already half-lost as it emerges from the nothingness before speaking, the blankness before writing. The point is surely not to put the classical vase back together, nor to solve the big philosophical puzzle, but rather to feel the edges that have remained so sharp and harsh over the fleeting moments, years, decades, and centuries. 23 4 The Unexpected Compassion of Gottfried Benn Discovering Gottfried Benn (1886–1956), especially outside of Â�Germany, has long had its obstacles.
Ashton mostly translates prose in Primal Vision (1958)—amply shows how different a poet Benn is. Whereas Brecht’s verse is often succinct, paradoxical, and simple in diction, with an emphasis on political and social satire, Benn’s sometimes equally satirical—or rather, sardonic—poetry has a much richer lexical texture and more original syntactic structures. The Wallace Stevens analogy can be pursued further because of their converging poetics. The two men share a liking for cognitive leaps and sharp imagery with a cultural sting to it.
Elliptic, witty in an understated way, and often aligning seemingly disjoint images, Eich searches, like Celan, for possibilities of renewing the German language and thus poetry after the ravages of Nazi rhetoric. He can be read in this light and also in that of his at least implicit reaction against Goethe’s sometimes too smoothly flowing meters and rhymes. Assuredly, there is passion in Goethe’s “double soul,” as the ginkgo poem and a famous line in Faust puts it, but its poetic formulation can appear too relaxed, at least in comparison to the linguistic turmoil experienced by such postwar poets as Celan and Eich.
