Freezing summer

Friedrich Hölderlin

Versión en español no disponible.

I wrote this hermeneutic reflection on a hot summer day in Washington D.C., on the little terrace of a bed-and-breakfast, close to Dupont Circle and Kramerbooks & Afterwords, one of my favourite bookstores. Wild roses, silent walls and frozen flags – trying to understand Hölderlin.

Mini-essay on the «Experience of truth in non-figurative art«, BA course ‘Phenomenoloy and Hermeneutics’ of Dr. A.W. Prins (in Dutch).
