Delle vecchie
anguille, poi, che sono scese al mare,
non si sa che ne avvenga.

(Forse, restando nella profonda
oscurità degli abissi marini,

colpito dalla loro
bellezza, da interdire con severe

di ucciderle un paio di piccioni

ed egli, lei presente,
li annega in un catino d’acqua.

which particular methodological premises that are underpinning such an organization of matter is, in this particular light, of secondary importance. what it comes down to is, above all, the fundamental aristotelian distinction between form and matter, and its still strong influence on concepts such as ”art” and ”poetry”.

bearing this in mind, it becomes one of the most crucial tasks for contemporary writing to subvert or dissolve the distinction between that which is produced by man and that which is produced by nature, or between the ”universal artist” (universalis artifex) and the ”universal matter” (universalis materia), to use the terminology of florentine neoplatonist 15th century philosopher marsilio ficino.[1]

for this to be possible, another understanding of the relationship between form and matter seems to be required. which? Continue reading ‘zu der blühenden allmaterie (abbozzo) / gustav sjöberg. 2017’
