Hölderlin’s Hymn The Ister by Martin Heidegger

That the river is an enigma does not mean it is a puzzle we should wish to “solve. But what is poetry? Antigone, in other words, takes the impossible as her point of departure.

Dwelling, the becoming homely of a being unhomely, is grounded in the poetic. Otherwise they shall be exposed to the weakness of suppressing every fire, of pursuing delimitation and institution only for the sake of it. Heidegger turns his attention to the first line of ” Der Ister “—”Now come, fire!

In other works, heidegger describes the uncanny as a state of wonder or astonishment at the fact that there is anything at all.

What could it mean to call, or to have the vocation for such a calling, given that the dawn will come whether it is called or not? The extraordinariness of human being is this being un-homely that is also a becoming homely.


That was amazing, and so I decided to re-read this, and also that I might as well read the whole thing. Want to Read saving…. The closing words of the ode call in the direction of a knowledge of the proper essence of the unhomely one. This law places historical humankind on the difficult path toward its essence. If this knowledge takes the form of intimation, it is not mere opinion. Thus, for example, the staged accomplishment of factories built for the purpose of fabricating machine tools for other factories.

Further essential determinations of the human being Review His remarks on the hymn were intended to make us attentive to the poetising of the rivers. I’m just not intelligent enough to put my finger on them ; May Man nennet aber diesen den Ister.
