  • Life Lines: Poems, Poetry, Poetics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The title of this issue of the Modern Language Notes––Life Lines––speaks of something vital in a situation of urgency. It also suggests, following the colon (Poems, Poetry, Poetics), where to look for it. Although insinuating a general direction, the visible and invisible lines composing poetry (in the larger sense of Dichtung) invite us to dwell on their loops, breaks, and turning points; to follow curvatures mapping out worlds; to ponder the interplay of these lines with infinitesimals, geometry, and algebra; and to reflect on the erratic affects or politics they command. Poetry speaks in lines that impart their intricate temporalities to anyone engaging with them. In this sense, they come with their own ... Read More

  • Rochelle Tobias and Kafka's Country Doctor

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Years before I met Rochelle Tobias, I met her through her writing. It was the summer of 2000. I had just finished my first year of teaching at the University of Toronto and was allowing myself to exhale and leaf aimlessly through journals in the reading room of Robarts Library. I stumbled across The Germanic Review and felt myself drawn to an article on Kafka; I was in the midst of writing a book about him. From the article's first phrase—"Of all the accusations made against the country doctor in Kafka's tale …"—I was hooked, not yet by the content but by the style (120). I sensed, as one does with good writing, a voice. I could hear this person, a person whom the byline said was Rochelle Tobias. And this person, I ... Read More

  • Reading A Free Life

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Ha Jin's 2007 novel A Free Life, poetry gets the last word.Over the course of 650 pages or so, the book tracks its protagonist, Nan Wu, as he searches for a place to call home. Having come to the United States from China as a foreign student, he decides in the wake of the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre to stay. Joined by his wife and young son, Nan embarks on a search for a new life. His journey takes him through various jobs, stations, and settings, ranging from the suburbs of Boston to New York City's Chinatown to a strip mall in the Greater Atlanta area where they set up a restaurant. Through it all, we never lose sight of one thing: what Nan really wants to do is write poems.1His attempts at poetry remain sporadic ... Read More

  • Joseph Roth at the Horizons of Hope

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay is a reimagining of a short paper I wrote in 2001 when I was an undergraduate student of Rochelle Tobias. While I am now fortunate enough to be her colleague some things have not changed: I am still learning from Rochelle and I am still working on Joseph Roth. This brief reflection is not homework, but a tribute to Rochelle in gratitude for her role in my education and my career.Joseph Roth's famously belated devotion to the Austro-Hungarian Empire was not linked to its onetime borders, but to its horizons. The borders that Roth believed mattered were not plotted by latitude and longitude; they were the horizons visible if one only looked up and over the borders of nations. In the 1927 book-length essay ... Read More

           Tobias

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For a decade now, since 2010, I have been mulling over the issue of how we experience climate change as a dimension of the everyday. More particularly, my question has been whether people who live in the midst of tremendous physical dynamism and economic precariousness can discern the signal of climate change' My interlocutors are those who dwell on changeable chars or silt islands in the middle of the tremendous Brahmaputra River that runs through Bangladesh into the Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean.Rochelle Tobias, my colleague and friend at Johns Hopkins University, has heard me speak on this topic from the beginning of my interest in it and along the way she has made many helpful comments to me. In this paper, I ... Read More

  • Hölderlin's "Der Ister" and Ecology in Rochelle Tobias's "Untamed
           Earth"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A recurring theme in Rochelle Tobias's work is the relationship between poetry and the world, in particular nature. She draws on literary theorists and philosophers like Benjamin, Lacoue-Labarthe, or Husserl to explore what she understands as the epistemological and formative function of poetry in relation to nature ("Ecology" and "Mythology;" see Khan in this issue). At the same time, Tobias seeks to avoid taking idealist or constructivist positions that limit our concepts, perceptions, or sensations of the outside world to expressions of our own cognitive or physical makeup, and that reduce poetic images of nature to linguistic or social constructions. Instead, she is sympathetic to Schelling's natural ... Read More

  • The Paraclete and Fürsprache in Hölderlin's Homecoming

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Characterizing the poet's task through invoking comparative roles has been common practice throughout Renaissance and Humanist poetry. Early modern poetics revels in historical speculation on mythical heroes and singers, on kings and prophets as the precursors to the poet, and by doing so it reaches back to antiquity and, with intensified significance, to early Christianity. Hölderlin's poems mention the prophet and the rhapsode, the bard or the one who sings on behalf of the congregation and, more often than not, they revolve around the constitutive pair of the epic hero's fame and the poem which is its echo and vessel. Not for the first time, to be sure, but with new importance and urgency, in outlining such ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The relation between phenomenology and modern German poetry is a primary concern of Rochelle Tobias' scholarly work. The following set of nine notes are concerned with this relation, and they seek an oblique response to a question she poses in her analysis of a roundabout altercation between Heidegger, Benjamin, and Lacoue-Labarthe concerning an open space in which the "logos" of the phenomenon and the work of poetry occasionally meet: "is there another way to understand poetry that accounts for its desire to create a space without subscribing to the mythology of the absent gods or the notion of a divine origin'" (Tobias 1172). A passage from one of Heidegger's posthumously published lectures in which he implicitly ... Read More

      Abstract: Immanuel Kants Grundlegung zur Metaphysik der Sitten, mit der er 1785 seine Ethik der Autonomie begründete, beginnt gleich mit einem Rätsel, und zwar mit einem Rätsel, das bis heute nicht aufgelöst ist. Nach kurzen, einleitenden Bemerkungen zum guten Willen als dem einzigen unbedingt Guten sowie einigen Beispielen von Handlungen aus Pflicht schreibt Kant:Der zweite Satz ist: eine Handlung aus Pflicht hat ihren moralischen Werth nicht in der Absicht, welche dadurch erreicht werden soll, sondern in der Maxime, nach der sie beschlossen wird, hängt also nicht von der Wirklichkeit des Gegenstandes der Handlung ab, sondern blos von dem Princip des Wollens, nach welchem die Handlung unangesehen aller Gegenstände des ...

  • Genius, Idiotism, Translingualism: Maimon and Kant

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The thesis of the present essay is already contained in the contradictory meanings of one of the words of its title. "Idiotism," the OED tells us, can mean "[i]gnorance; lack of knowledge or culture"; "the condition of being void of intellect or reason"; "extreme folly, senselessness, or stupidity, exhibited in thought or conduct." But "idiotism" does not just connote "idiot," but also, of course, "idiom," its etymological sibling. Hence, "idiotism" can be used to denote "the speech, language, or dialect peculiar to a country [or] age" as well as "the peculiar character or genius of a language" ("Idiotism"). It is in this sense that, in the German context, where the meanings of the word are quite similar, we find ... Read More

  • Beyond the Phenomena: Husserl, Abraham, Rilke

      Abstract: When Edmund Husserl describes the perceptual constitution of things in, among others, his lecture course from 1907, Ding und Raum, his rigorous logic of analysis is crossed through with a rhetoric of desire. To begin, the given "contents" of sensory data are found to contain no such thing as the adumbration of an identifiable object until our acts of apprehension lend them surplus meaning, let them point beyond themselves, and thereby give them the sense of leaving something to be desired: namely, other and fuller views of the intended "thing." "Die Empfindungsinhalte für sich enthalten noch nichts von dem Charakter der Wahrnehmung," Husserl writes, "nichts von der Richtung auf den einen wahrgenommenen Gegenstand. ... Read More

  • Meter and Time in Mörike's "Um Mitternacht"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Eduard Mörike's poem from 1827 belongs to a distinct class of lyric poetry whose defining characteristic is intricate formal order achieved within a restricted textual space. The intense formal organization of the poem is immediately evident in the musical effects produced by its metrical and phonological patterns. Yet Mörike's poem does not only realize formal order through its aesthetic qualities. It also foregrounds the problematic of order through the concept of mid-point implicit in the title, the allegorization of symmetry in the parallel images of the scale and the yoke, and the precise parallelism between the two stanzas. Even in an initial approach to the poem, moreover, one is liable to make a third ... Read More

  • Recognizing "the party of humankind": Käte Hamburger on Mitleid

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her final book, the lean and crisp 1985 study Das Mitleid, Käte Hamburger draws on the history of philosophical accounts of Mitleid as well as its appearance in modern literary works to ultimately present her own analysis of the concept. At the outset she notes that the concept has different connotations in different languages, including Greek ἒλεος, Latin misericordia, French pitié, and English pity and compassion; some thinkers have extended the range of the concept's extension to include empathy and sympathy; I shall simply retain the term Mitleid in my remarks here. Hamburger herself defines Mitleid as "die Teilnahme am Mißgeschick anderer" (7, 10, 12, 96, 100, 104, and passim). That is, she understands ... Read More

      Abstract: Als Käte Hamburger 1929 ihren Aufsatz „Novalis und die Mathematik" in einem Band aus der Buchreihe der Deutschen Vierteljahrsschrift für Literaturwissenschaft und Geistesgeschichte zum Thema „Romantik-Forschung" veröffentlichte, war sie zwar nicht die erste, die auf Hardenbergs Beschäftigung mit der Mathematik aufmerksam machte, aber sie war die erste, die dieser Beschäftigung eine ernsthafte erkenntnistheoretische Bedeutung zusprach. Zu sehr widersprach die strenge Rationalität der Mathematik in den 1920er Jahren dem zeitgenössischen Bild der gefühlsbetonten, schwärmerischen, metaphysischen Romantik, der jegliches strenge Kalkül fremd zu sein hatte. Sich diesem, insbesondere durch Dilthey verbreiteten Bild ... Read More

      Abstract: Wer an die Lebenslinie denkt, wird sie sich bevorzugt aufsteigend vorstellen. Auf der Suche nach passender Lektüre mögen sich Theodor Gottlieb von Hippels Lebensläufe nach Aufsteigender Linie, nebst Beylagen A, B, C aufdrängen, verspricht der Titel doch Einblicke in zielgerichtetes Arrivieren. Dieser eigenwillige Roman, von 1778 bis 1781 in drei Teilen bei Voß in Berlin erschienen,1 hält allerdings ganz und gar nicht, was er zu versprechen scheint, ja er liefert nachgerade das Gegenteil: Nicht nur wird von keiner fortschreitenden Karriere erzählt, sondern die „aufsteigende Linie" bezieht sich nicht einmal auf individuelle Biographien. Vielmehr soll es bei dieser Linie um die familiengeschichtliche Genealogie des ... Read More

  • "Nel mezzo del cammin": Queneau's Enfants du Limon

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I propose to examine here, with admiration, a single novel by Raymond Queneau, Les Enfants du Limon. Its two principal elements are politics and insanity: their ways of inspiring, or exploiting, each other. Or more simply, their general resemblance.At least so it seems if one rereads the novel today. Its title—Children of the Clay, in English—suggests the other strong current running through it: the wish for a new life, and the muddy start and finish of all lives.The concatenations of politics and madness can twist unhappiness and the desire for change into grotesque shapes. Les Enfants du Limon is a crowded exhibition of such distortions. But its form suggests that its entire déroulement is a process whereby it ... Read More

      Abstract: Je lis Proust depuis des décennies. La délectation procurée depuis l'adolescence par la lecture de la Recherche s'apparentait pour moi, secrètement, à un plaisir sinon tout à fait honteux, en tout cas un peu trouble, et, sans savoir comment, intimement associé à l'exercice de la philosophie. C'est que le philosophe, comme dit Schelling, a lui aussi ses ravissements. Mais il faut encore qu'ils s'accordent, fût-ce dans l'écart et la dysharmonie, avec l'exigence de la pensée qui leur fait accueil. À défaut de cet accord, fait de longueur et de patience de temps, l'écriture philosophique sur, à propos ou autour de Marcel Proust demeure en attente de son espace effectif, comme suspendue à son propre rêve. Mon propos se ... Read More

           (1919)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: First published in November 1919 in the journal Die Weißen Blätter, Else Lasker-Schüler's poem "Hagar und Ismaël" is replete with images of blackness: "die zwei schwarzen Schwäne" ("the two black swans"); "dunkle Töne" ("dark tones"); and, finally, the jarring concluding word, "Negerzähne" ("Negro teeth"), a phrase redolent of the pseudo-scientific jargon of race science, like something from an imperial-era museum of anthropology.2 The poem recounts and reimagines episodes from Genesis 21:1–21. Where the Bible verses tell of how Sarah orders her husband to cast out Hagar, the Egyptianborn slave with whom Abraham has fathered a child, Lasker-Schüler's poem puts the accent on the cast-out mother and her son, and ...

      Abstract: In a poignant passage in The Origins of Totalitarianism, Hannah Arendt describes the horrors of loneliness that see one lose one's trust in the stability of one's mind and the world. As the capacity for coherent thought and experience evaporate, the only thing left to hold on to is "the ability of logical reasoning whose premise is the self-evident. The elementary rules of cogent evidence, the truism that two and two equals four, cannot be perverted even under the conditions of absolute loneliness" (Origins 477). When the very ability to think can no longer be taken for granted, the self-evident is one's last resort, but the respite is hollow. If this is "the only reliable 'truth' human beings can fall back upon," ... Read More

  • Picture Lessons in Kafka's The Trial

      Abstract: We know that Kafka was fascinated by pictures,1 and they play a prominent role in his work. In Der Prozeß, visual art is elevated to a privileged position when K. visits a painter for advice about his trial.2 Many scholars have explored Kafka's interest in visual media,3 but none has described in detail the picture lessons that take place in the novel. This may be because many take their cue from the end, when K. wonders if people will say he's learned nothing. But does K. really learn nothing from pictures' In fact, there are many picture lessons in the novel—from the sketch K. examines on the judge's desk to the painting that K scrutinizes in the cathedral.What, then, do pictures tell us' The one lesson that ...

  • The Sex of Language: Jacob Grimm on Grammatical Gender

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1831, Jacob Grimm issued a study of grammatical gender, that structure which famously made Mark Twain, some fifty years later, call German the most "slipshod and slippery" of languages (252). For Twain, classifying nouns into the categories "masculine," "feminine," and "neuter" was ridiculous; to take gender seriously led to the absurd contention that "a young lady has no sex, while a turnip has" (259). For Grimm, however, grammatical gender appeared not absurd, but deeply meaningful. As it becomes clear in volume III of his Deutsche Grammatik, Grimm considered gender to be an eminently sensible structure: one must simply suss out the relationship between a noun's referent and certain sexed characteristics. ...
