Hölderlin-Novalis: l’unico incontro in vita

Susanna Mati


The two most important poets-philophers of early xix century, Friedrich Hölderlin and Novalis (Friedrich von Hardenberg), met only once in their lives, in May 1795. This imaginary dialogue lets them speak about many relevant issues and concerns of their philosophies: the problem of consciousness (Bewusstsein), the role of imagination (Einbildungskraft), the magic and transformative activity of poetry, the thought about tragic and religion and, finally, myth as the original source of every poiesis, as that element which opens to future and possibility.
