Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In spite of their temporal distance, the three poets whose works are collected here—Meister Eckhart, Angelus Silesius, and Paul Celan—seem to have the same vocation: creating a language that defies any attempts at interpretation. The elusive quality of their work, however, demands repeated readings. Evoking the absoluteness of nothingness as well as the unity of everything created, these poets draw inspiration from various spiritual doctrines in order to come closer to God.


A pesar de su distancia en el tiempo, los tres poetas cuyas obras se reúnen aquí—Meister Eckhart, Angelus Silesius y Paul Celan—parecen tener una misma vocación: crear un lenguaje que escape a toda pretensión interpretativa. La calidad escurridiza de su obra, sin embargo, requiere múltiples lecturas. Evocando tanto el absoluto de la nada como la unión de todo lo creado, estos poetas toman inspiración de varias doctrinas espirituales para acercarse a Dios.
