Elucidations of Hölderlin’s Poetry

Heidegger, Martin. Elucidations of Hölderlin's Poetry. Translated by Keith Höller. Amherst, N.Y: Humanity Books, 2000.


The commentaries of Martin Heidegger on the lyric poems of German Romantic poet Friedrich Hölderlin are an extraordinary encounter between poetry and the penetrating thought of a powerful philosophical mind. The writings included here reveal much about Heidegger’s innermost thoughts on poetry, language, and how we think.
