Show Summary Details


This chapter deals with two titles: “From the Experience of Thought” and “The Pathway”. The first title is a series of epigrams, poetic in style, and dating from 1947. It adopts an unusual format where the left-hand side of the page carries a single line of nature-description and the right side four epigrams. The descriptive portions attempt to bring beings into words and preempt the poet's role. The reflective portions meditate the sense of what he is doing and express it in words. Meanwhile, the second title was composed to help the author's townsmen of Messkirch commemorate in 1949 the one hundredth anniversary of composer Conrad Kreutzer's death.

Keywords: From the Experience of Thought; The Pathway; epigram; Messkirch; Kreutzer; composer
