25.04.2008 - Interpretation von dali48
From early youth his restlessness of which I have spoken lifted me to one particular delight:
reading and, in time, writing... - The destiny of my life, its direction, was determined by a bodily weakness - I became seriously ill of a chronic complaint... - I had to abandon all my other concerns... - those which I might call corporal, and to retreat to the countryside... - far from my former activities - The vacuum thus created was soon evaded by another activity which did not call for physical exertion and could easily be combined with the rest that the doctors... - had ordered me to take - This unforgettable, all-conquering invasion was the practice of letters; poetry occupied to the full the gap of activity... - I began to write with complete dedication and it was then, only then, that I became possessed by the passion which was never to leave me - Hours of solitude, hours of creation, hours of meditation... - Solitude and meditation gave me an awareness, a perspective which I have never lost:
that of solidarity with the rest of mankind. Since that time I have always proclaimed that poetry is communication, in the exact sense of that word - Poetry is a succession of questions which the poet constantly poses. Each poem, each book is demand, a solicitation, an interrogation, and the answer is tacit, implicit, but also continuous, and the reader gives it to himself through his reading - It is an exquisite dialogue in which the poet questions and the reader silently gives his full answer... - His (author) fundamental mission is, to use a different metaphor, to pass on a living torch to a younger generation - which has to continue the arduous struggle... (V. Aleixandre, Nobel L. 1977)
