HOLDERLIN HYPERION PDF

Sometimes it seems like all of the great German philosophers and poets of a certain era were sickly and miserable. Goethe spent a year and a half of his twenties being nursed by his mother and sister. Schiller was fine until he dropped dead of tuberculosis at age Hegel had some sort of gastrointestinal trouble that might or might not have been cholera. He might not have been sick, but he went nuts.

Well, that's how I understood it. It was painful and tedious to read. Nevertheless, it is good to know that he was mates with Hegel and Schelling, so that explains why it felt a bit idealist. From the same period, I definitely prefer to read Rousseau or Voltaire. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Start your review of Hyperion oder Der Eremit in Griechenland. I hesitates between two. Poetry of course. The fragile mentale child of Age of Enlightement or the giant hero of Resistance against nazi. The problem is traduction. In french, It's Philippe Jacottet a poet who translate Holderlin.

It is a little too hermetic from my point of view. So I'm complain to learn german to have my own translation. So Holderlin or Char? I take both. Apr 10, Meike added it Shelves: uni , germany. Let's see how that goes - it certainly wasn't an easy read. What a marvel, what a work of art! I read this novel slowly, relishing each letter in turn. It inspired me and moved me.

Truly, a masterpiece! Food for thought for scholars, many books have been written about the Hyperion. It is the story of a young Greek dreamer, who wishes to liberate Greece from the oppressors and see Ancient Classic Greece come alive again. Linked to real historical events, the Turkish-Russian War in the Peloponnese. Hyperion participates in some battles. The author tells the story in form of letters written by Hyperion to his friend Bellarmin, with the exception of a few letters written to and from Diotima, his true love.

Then he will meet Alabanda, a beautiful young man who takes a liking to Hyperion, liking that resembles very much an erring love between them. But soon that friendship breaks up. In Mai the next year Hyperion meets beautiful Diotima, and they fall deeply in love.

However, as much as Hyperion loves her, he is carried away by his ambition to fight and liberate Greece. He meets up again with Alabanda, and they both join the ongoing Turkish-Russian war. There is no happy end in sight. The main characteristic of this novel is the extreme high level of language and vocabulary. Sometimes too much so, to my taste.

A great reading experience however. View 2 comments. A German writing a love letter to greece? It was a different time all right. More than that it is a biographic tale about loss, love, romanticism etc. It mixes quite skilfully bildungsroman and epistolary writing, what were pretty much the fashionable writting gimmicks of its time. If you have a love for German Romantic literature and philosophy do give it a go.

If you liked Goethe's Werther, you'll probably like this. I kept reading here and there that Holderlin influenced many philosophers and poets. I read Hyperion partly because I read his name many times and I didn't know why he is so influential.

Now I know. Even if I read the translation rather than the German version of Hyperion, the ideas enclosed in it are interesting enough to ignore the loss in translation. Apr 09, John Hatley rated it really liked it. It is a love story, a tale of friendship, disappointment and devotion to nature.

This is mostly the kind of high-drama romantic self-absorbed and overblown narrative that I hate -- and I mostly hated it. It's actually written as a series of letters What I did like was that the 'introduction' was in the translator's postscript -- I so prefer reading about authors after I've encountered their work. The postscript also reconciled me just a little--not to the content, but to Holderlin himself.

I feel that in the shorter form of poetry, whe This is mostly the kind of high-drama romantic self-absorbed and overblown narrative that I hate -- and I mostly hated it.

I feel that in the shorter form of poetry, where the undeniable beauty of some of his phrasing could shine without being enmeshed in a long outpouring of sameness that makes your eyes glaze over. Particularly if I read German. I still find it a little hard to see what Nietszche liked about this book, or anyone. Holderlin's descent into madness, however, though unsurprising from the high-maintainence hyper-sensitivity and self-obsessions of the prose, made me feel a little guilty about my desire to slap all of the characters and the author himself.

Of course, this guy was one of the inventors of romanticism. From the vantage point of today I find him a stereotyped figure, but this was all new at the time, and it's interesting for the new and undeniably fresher views of god and religion and nature.

But if you need a cure for using too many exclamation marks, this is for you: Oh heaven and earth! I cried, this is joy! With your glorious soul, O man!

You will save my fatherland! From that day on we became ever holier and dearer to each other. Profound, indescribable seriousness had arisen between us. People like me will find it painful. This is from the bromance section, which was so explicit to my modern eyes I was quite sure and fairly surprised that he was so openly celebrating ancient Greece in all of its traditions.

I can't quite bring myself to believe that it was not read so at the time, even though apparently it wasn't, and the passionately rampant love he felt for Alabander was more of a metaphor than anything else.

Hyperion, or the Hermit in Greece

Translated from German by Ross Benjamin. Hyperion is a novel of stirring lyricism, philosophical sublimity, and historic importance. Indeed, this prose is music, soft melting sounds interrupted by painful dissonances, finally expiring in dark, uncanny dirges. The novel is composed of a series of letters written by a Greek hermit to a German friend. Hyperion explores the striving for harmonious unity, the struggle for freedom and a better world, and the divinity of nature and love. In the euphonious movement of its prose, in the sublimity and beauty of the figures that appear in it, it makes an impression upon me similar to the beat of the waves of the troubled sea.
