"Lucas Murrey shares with his subject, Hoelderlin, a vision of the Greeks as bringing something vitally important into our poor world, a vision of which few classical scholars are now capable." -Richard Seaford, author of Money and the Early Greek Mind and Dionysus. "Here triumphs a temperament guided by ancient religion and that excavates, in Hoelderlin's translations, the central god Dionysus of Greek tragedy." -Bernhard Boeschenstein, author of "Frucht des Gewitters". Zu Hoelderlins Dionysos als Gott der Revolution and Paul Celan: Der Meridian. "Lucas Murrey takes the god of tragedy, Dionysus, finally serious as a manifestation of the ecstatic scream of liberation and visual strategies of dissolution: he pleasantly portrays Hoelderlin's idiosyncratic poetic sympathy." -Anton Bierl, author of Der Chor in der Alten Komoedie. Ritual and Performativitat "Hoelderlin most surely deserved such a book." -Jean-Francois Kervegan, author of Que faire de Carl Schmitt? "...fascinating material..." -Noam Chomsky, author of Media Control and Nuclear War and Environmental Catastrophe.
Bloggat om Hoelderlin's Dionysiac Poetry
Lucas Murrey (Ph.D. Yale University) has taught at UCLA (Los Angeles) and Yale University (New Haven) and is presently finishing two works Friedrich Nietzsche: The Meaning of Earth and Fin-de-Siecle Germany and the Trauma of the Great War. The abiding interest in the power of images and language not only to estrange, but also to return humankind to its earthly place in the cosmos, as betrayed by Murrey's research and teaching style, may well have its roots in his childhood and youth in southern California. Of particular concern to him is the communal potential of seeing (and listening) in ways that transcend the narrowness of a media culture that is driven exclusively by money and its (lethal) socio-political symptoms.
