Didactic poetries

by Philippe Beck | 01 October 2016
Category: General Poetry
Synopsis
Complex, haunting, imaginative and profoundly literary, Didactic Poetries is Beck\u2019s response to Schiller\u2019s statement: \u201cWe are still waiting for a didactic poem where thought itself would be and would remain poetic,\u201d and Hegel\u2019s claim that, \u201cstrictly speaking, didactic poetry isn\u2019t poetry.\u201dFor the acclaimed French poet, Philippe Beck, Schiller\u2019s task of attempting a didactic poetry remains as vital today as it was for Schiller\u2019s time. Is there a way to construct a poetry built and chiseled, hammered and stitched, from out of past narratives and poetries, condensed in such a manner as to make new poetic verses sing new truths? Forging a singular attempt to echo the poets and tales of a bygone age, Beck\u2019s didactic poetries perhaps carve out the path for renewing a poetic thought as a quasi-musical atmosphere where the reader can glimpse \u201cA small country \u201csculpted\u201d as spiritual, supposed to be so?at home in the Bygone Country. Alluvial layers so light, that weather disappeared, weary of variety a priori.\u201d Beck\u2019s deftly textured poems interweave contemporary commentary with cultural, historical, literary, and philosophical allusions, drawing the reader into a world of lived poetic experience.
