Abstract

59 Heidegger and Hölderlin: The Over-Usage of "Poets in an Impoverished Time" ANNEMARIE GETHMANN-SIEFERT Ruhr Universität Bochum It seems that everything there is to say on the topic of Heidegger and Holderlin-if not too much-has already been said. Heidegger's philological errors have been thoroughly analyzed, as has the path of his thinking from the encounter with Holderlin.' In 1934/35, Heidegger composed his first Hdlderlin Lecture as the answer to and justification for an abortive political commitment. The first interpretive option is naturally-if we follow Heidegger's later self interpretation-the failure to disclose an error or misdirected commitment in this. Consequently it was also the case that from the perspective of practical philosophy, the relationship between thinking and acting, between interpreting and politics in Heidegger's encounter with Holderlin, is treated exhaustively. At least Heidegger himself obviously must have accepted his confrontation with Holderlin as the version of the way out of the political error that appeared most responsible to him, and indeed he camouflaged it as something wrung from his own cleverness. At the same time, it was to be understood as a clear rejection of the creations of National Socialism.2 2 If one reads Heidegger's Holderlin interpretation in light
