The chaotic mix of parts in Trakl's poems is extra obvious than genuine, this e-book argues, hence difficult the "Orphic" view of Walther Killy and his fans. A dream of unity—one of the main old desires in human history—is actually mirrored in all of Trakl's work.
The habitual subject matters in Trakl's poetry are introduced into concentration via Dr. Detsch's literary, mental, and philosophical research: the union of female and male in incest from the Jungian point of view, the union of lifestyles and dying from the Heideggerian point of view and that of German Romanticism as represented by way of Novalis, the union of excellent and evil from the Dostoyevskian or Nietzschean point of view, the aggregate of pictures from the Goethean definition of symbolism.
Trakl (1887–1914) is gifted as a poet whose lyric voice sounded a cry of desire in its inner most depression. As Dr. Detsch's beneficiant quotations from the poet's paintings (in the unique German) clarify, Georg Trakl sought poetic expression for a union of opposites.
