International Workshop: German Poetry and Philosophy: Hölderlin, Rilke, Celan

International Workshop: German Poetry and Philosophy: Hölderlin, Rilke, Celan

Hosted by the Goethe-Institut, Sydney, and the University of Sydney

This international workshop will explore the relationship between poetry and philosophy by focusing on three German-language poets whose work spans the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries: Friedrich Hölderlin, Rainer Maria Rilke and Paul Celan. Hölderlin is recognized as a major poet of the Romantic era and a key figure in the development of post-Kantian philosophy. Only belatedly recognized for his genius, Hölderlin also played a crucial role in the developments of twentieth-century poetry (including Rilke) and philosophy (Heidegger and Adorno, among others). Rilke has been one of the most influential and widely translated European poets and an important interlocutor for Continental philosophers, particularly within the traditions of phenomenology, existentialism and hermeneutics (Heidegger, Gadamer, Ricoeur, among others). Celan is one of the defining figures of post-WWII German-language poetry and has been central to philosophical attempts to address the Holocaust (including interpretations by Adorno and Derrida).
