Description

Pain / Schmerz – Poetical Philosophical Miniatures

Reinhard Knodt has a gift for combining philosophy and poetry into an inextricable amalgamation. His book, whose first edition quickly sold out, shows that „Schmerz“ (pain) is not something negative, to be avoided, but rather a yearning, homesickness, lovesickness, or rumination about loss; it is among the most important concerns of life. Addressed are basic situations: I am sick, I have gotten married, I have a boss, I have a child, but also the mental state of our time. These very densely woven texts are sometimes even suited for meditation; on the other hand, they also present a downright urgent atmosphere of pleading to become „essential“. The end marks a “solution” that does not consist in the avoidance of pain.
