Sample text

This is language which truly inaugurates a 'world' and gives to things their appearance and significance: Homer, Sappho, Pindar, Sophocles, are they literature? No! But that is the way they appear to us, and the only way, even when we are engaged in demonstrating by means of literary history that these works of poetry really are not literature. (WT, p. 134)13 Let us now turn to Heidegger's reading of a particular poem, 'A Winter Evening' by Georg Trakl (' Language' (1959), PL T, pp. 189-230). Concerning the lines 'Window with falling snow is arrayed / Long tolls the vesper bell', Heidegger writes: The speaking names the winter evening time.

This appearance is still the basic trait of the presence of all present beings, as they rise into unconcealment, (WL, p. 38) Similarly, it would be false to transfer modern problems in the philosophy of perception or representation to ancient Greek thought. For the latter, humankind does not face the world, rather it is faced by the phenomena themselves in their disclosure. Derrida also notes that there is no equivalent in ancient Greek for the modern 'representation'. 3 What is involved, however is not some return to the Greeks.

Concerning the lines 'Window with falling snow is arrayed / Long tolls the vesper bell', Heidegger writes: The speaking names the winter evening time. What is this naming? Does it merely deck out the imaginable familiar objects and eventa-snow, bell, window, falling, ringing - with words of a language? (PLT, p. Ig8) In insisting 'No', Heidegger grants an ontological status to language: This naming does not hand out titles, it does not apply terms, but it calls into the word. The naming calls. Calling brings closer what it calls.
