Abstract

139 Heidegger: Preparing to Read Hölderlin's Germanien ARTHUR A. GRUGAN Holy Family College Und noch lange sie seufzen, die fallverkündende Worte ... Traulich summen benachbarte Abendgloken zusammen, Hölderlin, Die Tek ... sondem Jegliches, was ist, wird durchwest vom Gegenwesen. Heidegger, Hölderlins Hymne "Der Ister" Because Heidegger's thinking holds itself rapt on one issue, Being, the poetry of Holderlin must pertain essentially to that issue; no mere aesthetic prefer- ence or personal liking for Holderlin could justify Heidegger's extensive reading of that poet's poetry. Reading Holderlin, Heidegger says, is a question "only of That which sets this work into work and, that is, always, what it conceals and holds contained in itself" (A, 6).' More specifically, Heidegger says that Holderlin's poetry speaks in a mode of saying that overcomes the tradition's forgottenness of Being and prepares for thinking the way unto another beginning.' Involved deeply "in the withdrawal and in the reserve" of Being,3 Holderlin's poetry speaks neither the language of logic nor that of formal grammar, because Holderlin's essential words, Heidegger writes, do not issue from anything like a metaphysical subject (I, 203).
