The Writer's Chronicle February 2015 : Page 21

You have to like it. Read the things you like. And then listen to them, and go on listening, listening to language, listening to poems. It makes you sound very clever, and it maybe gets you good marks. I think that listening is where it all begins, where it all comes from.

The origin of language and the origin of poetry come from hearing something, not from understanding something. When you see a picture of a woman with her mouth open whose husband has just been killed by a bomb in front of her, you know what the sound is coming out. But you can hear it, you know what it means. Only you can tell you what to listen for.

But listen. All you have to do is stop, and listen to what you hear. If you hear the empty stream bed. If you hear the birds waking up in the morning. If you hear the car shrieking to a stop at the red light. Whatever it may be. You belong. Listening, listening, listening. You know that book? McEwen: Yes. I adore that book. He starts talking about how language is a gift from heaven, and things like that.

Silence and music. Silence and speech. And you read it over and over again. And that book influenced Rainer Maria Rilke, the great Austrian poet. Rilke, I think, was one of the two supremely great poets of the 20 th century. Rilke and Yeats. They were so different from each other. But they had many things deeply in common. This whole feeling about language, too. Yeats was thinking about language all the way through his life, including the lost languages, the old Celtic languages of Ireland.

침묵의 세계 by Max Picard

At a recent committee meeting, the topic of pregnancy came up. It was shared that a community member was expecting another child. A few men in the room were the first and only to comment on this news. While the comments struck me as inappropriate, it was the silence, including my own, that kept me up that night. I felt uncomfortable, and frankly a bit ashamed of my own complicity. Why did no one speak up in dissent?

Immediacy and Meaning seeks to approach the odd uneasiness at root in all metaphysical meaning; that the human knower attempts to mediate what cannot be mediated; that there is a pre-cognitive immemorial immediacy to Being that renders its participants irreducible, incommunicable and personal. The dilemma of metaphysics rests on the relationship between the spectator and the player, both as essential responses to the immediacy of Being. Immediacy and Meaning is an attempt to pause, but without retreat, to be a spectator within the game, to gain access into this immediate Presence, for a moment only perhaps, before the signatory failure into metaphysical language returns us to the mediated. Huysman's semi-autobiographical tetralogy anchors this book as a meditation, neither purely poetic nor only philosophical; it claims a unique territory when attempting to speak what cannot be spoken. The unnerving merits of nominalism, the difficulties of an honest appraisal of efficacious prayer, the mad sanity of the muse, the relationship between the uncreated and the created, and an originary ethics of antagonism, each serves to clarify the formation of a new epistemology.


In This book Max Picard, author of The Flight from world without silence, man cannot be recreated, he language, and I owe this awareness perhaps to the.

For it is all of creation, both visible and invisible, that Picard senses as emerging from the fertile womb of silence, about which adjectives like divine and holy and life-giving might properly be applied: it is a positive, a complete world unto itself. Whether Picard is speaking of God or man, language or music, the world of nature or of human artifice, silence is the lingua franca which he develops in images both aural and even more strikingly visual: the branches of the trees are like dark lines that have followed the movements of the silence- the leaves thickly cover the branches as if the silence wanted to conceal itself.
