In theory, I find poetry to be fascinating; artistic use of language to convey the writer's inalienable experiences and possibly life itself in a greater sense. I can't seem to find anything that really resonates with me, just seems to come off as super trite or overly "weak". I understand there's a place for that stuff, but surely there's something out there that is forceful and compelling (something that I personally want/need more of to combat the mediocrity that seems overly prevalent in culture and my life).

Any recommendations?

Also, poetry discussion in general is cool. Doesn't look like there's any other threads present.

OP here, I've been digging into poetry a bit as of late, but I've really taken a liking to Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost. I know they're big name poetry people, so nothing new here for most of you, but I think that kind of put me off from taking a closer look at them. Lots of depth in their work, not the surface level pastoral stuff that I was expecting.

i was really hoping for a valid discussion, but it seems i was being naive


 No.1007

I never had the sense that Nietzsche ever engaged with Hegel per se, and not Marx either. The closest he was to the former was his essay on Strauss, which had almost nothing to do with Hegel himself beyond some cursory remarks influenced by Schopenhauer; the closest he was to the latter were his short condemnations of anarchists and socialists generally, although even those seemed more aimed at the utopian strains (e.g. Fourierism) and the more nihilistic anarchists influenced by Blanquism and the like.

And the ((())) crap does make this thread look like a /pol/ (is cancer)lack thread, even if that wasn't the intention.

I never said he engaged "directly" with them

>the closest he was to the former was his essay on Strauss

lol, is that what google told you? how about:

(a) On the Uses and Abuses of History for Life

(b) pretty much everything he wrote, when it comes down to it, is fundamentally in conflict w/ Hegel's perspective

>the closest he was to the latter were his short condemnations of socialists

He wrote whole tracts on the mindset of these people (The Priests, etc), and the parts where he mentioned socialists specifically were not short in any way shape or form. How about you actually read Niezsche before you talk, eh?

>muh utopian socialists

The parts where he specifically mentioned socialists were aimed at the Social Democratic Party of his time, iirc. You're just talking out your ass, now, unless you're going to go full-on retard and claim that only your little special snowflake form of socialism isn't "Utopian" (>muh Marx & Engels) and then ignore everything Nietzsche wrote (eg. The Priests) and try to retcon him like he's not completely incompatible with Marxism, like (((Judith Butler))), the Agonist Dems and other retards.

>protip: Nietzsche is completely incompatible with everything /leftypol/

There may be some strains of anarchism or hardcore nihilistic post-modernist/post-structuralist stuff that you might be able to squeeze him into, but it'll have nothing to do with Hegel or Marx, and that's the original point.

>>thinking i'll not recognize ur references and be intimidated

No, I assumed you would, although this response does strike me as somewhat insecure.

>pretty much everything he wrote, when it comes down to it, is fundamentally in conflict w/ Hegel's perspective

I don't disagree that it's fundamentally in conflict. I just never had the sense he engaged with Hegel directly beyond Schopenhauer's response to him.

Also, "pretty much everything he wrote"? I was talking about a specific engagement, so this is nonsensical. On the Use and Abuse of History responds to a progressive idea of history; while Hegel's idea of history is that, it isn't specifically to Hegel.

>You're just talking out your ass, now

<iirc

But it's possible; it's been a while since I've read him, and at the time I wouldn't have cared much to distinguish between the Marxist groups, socdems, and utopian socialists.

Aggressive posturing is also posturing. I'm not sure why you were hoping for a "valid discussion" when your OP and responses both guarantee that you won't have much more than provocation in response to provocation. Enjoy your terrible thread.

Hey /litpat/, nice meeting you.

Politics have ruined my life, poisoned my mind and I am looking to salvage what I can by reading a book to radically depoliticize my mind.

I've thought about reading "The Communist" by Guido Morselli which supposedly deals with and embraces, celebrates the nihilism many self-proclaimed communists find themselves trapped within.

>I thought N cited Socrates as one of the great men of history

He does praise Socrates in a few cases, although he regarded Socrates (and Plato) as someone who perverted Ancient Greece's moral/aesthetic sense toward slave morality (mainly because of his hatred of life which arose from him being physically revolting; the comparison between him and Silenus was probably what Nietzsche had in mind). Nietzsche had a similarly ambivalent attitude toward Jesus as a person.

Kierkegaard also notably had an ambivalent attitude toward Socrates and his ironic mode.
