15.04.2008 - Interpretation of dali48
It is through the Sun that the night and the stars are perceptible to us... - We go wrong today through the extent of our knowledge. In saying this I do not wish to join the long list of censors of our technological civilization... - This is what I reply: poetry is the only place where the power of numbers proves to be nothing... - But how can creation develop freely in these directions when the conditions of life, in our time, annihilate the creator? - And how can a cultural community be created when the diversity of languages raises an unsurpassable obstacle (see eg English as "Esperanto language" etc. - d.48)? . No. We remain mute, incommunicable. We are suffering from the absence of a common language... - We say, and make the observation each day - that we live in a moral chaos... - A praise-worthy tendency, encouraging the peoples of Europe to unite, is confronted today with the impossibility of harmonization of the atrophied and hypertrophic parts of our civilization... - Our values do not constitute a common language... - Rimbaud will say "a sea mixed with sun" - Except he will add: "that is eternity"... - A young girl holding a myrtle branch in Archilochus survives in a painting by Matisse... - I have often tried to speak of solar metaphysics... - The language of the Greeks, like a magic instrument, has as a reality or a symbol - intimate relations with the Sun... - To hold the Sun in one's hands without being burned, to transmit it like a torch to those following, is a painful act but I believe, a blessed one - We have need of it... (O. Elytis, Nobel L. 1979)
