By Willems, Brian; Heidegger, Martin; Hopkins, Gerard Manley
Hopkins and Heidegger is a brand new exploration of Gerard Manley Hopkins' poetics during the paintings of Martin Heidegger. extra noticeably, Brian Willems argues that the paintings of Hopkins does at the least suggest options to a few hitherto unresolved questions relating to Heidegger's later writings, vitalizing the suggestions of either writers past their neighborhood contexts. Willems examines a few cross-sections among the poetry and considered Hopkins and the philosophy of Heidegger. whereas neither author ever without delay addressed the other's paintings - Hopkins died the 12 months Heidegger used to be born, 1899, and Heidegger by no means turns his concepts on poetry to the Victorians - a few similarities among the 2 were famous yet by no means fleshed out. Willems' readings of those cross-sections are concentrated on Hopkins' ideas of 'inscape' and 'instress' and round Heidegger's examining of either appropriation (Ereignis) and the fourfold (das Geviert). This examine might be of curiosity to students and postgraduates in either Victorian literature and Continental philosophy.

Extra info for Hopkins and Heidegger
For Heidegger, human beings are always already dwelling poetically, it is just that they often forget, for they have so many distractions: ‘Our dwelling is harassed by the housing shortage’ (Heidegger, 2001a, p. 211). In fact, this always already [immer schon], and its forgetting [die Seinvergessensheit] are intertwined. , p. 225). For both Hopkins and Heidegger, not just the possibility but the potentiality for poetic (human) being is foregrounded, with the diﬀerence between possibility and potentiality being that in possibility actuality does not need to already exists, while potentiality always already assumes both the futural being and the non-being of an event.

Therefore there is an indication of a divided self, one that allows for the incorporation of the other within. This divided self is an essential element in the understanding of Ereignis. The way that Hopkins’ poetry is read here is that it not only functions to enact Ereignis, but also at the same time to negate it. Such negation is not a part of Heidegger’s thinking of Ereignis, and it is this negation that will allow Hopkins’ poetry to propel us into a rethinking of a number of other readings of Heidegger and beyond.
