Description - Poema a la duracion / An Ode to the Length of Time by Peter Handke

Premio Nobel de Literatura 2019.

"Por un trabajo influyente que, con inventiva linguistica, ha explorado las periferias y la especificidad de la experiencia humana." Jurado del Premio Nobel

Peter Handke publico Poema a la duracion en 1986, el mismo ano en que aparecio su novela La repeticion, con la que de alguna manera se relaciona.

Lirico y epico a un tiempo, narrativo y filosofico, este poema largo explora la duracion como algo que, a diferencia de la nocion metafisica de la eternidad, se manifiesta en la irrupcion subita de algo que vuelve, arrastrandonos en el tiempo y dandonos la sensacion de que en la vida humana hay una unidad interna muy fuerte y a la vez completamente desconocida.

Canto a la fugacidad y al movimiento incesante de la vida, Poema a la duracion es una obra maestra del genero que aqui publicamos en la extraordinaria y ya clasica version de Eustaquio Barjau.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Nobel Prize in Literature 2019

"For an influential work that with linguistic ingenuity has explored the periphery and the specificity of human experience." -The Nobel Prize Jury

Peter Handke published An Ode to the Length of Time in 1986, the same year he published his novel Repetition, one to which this poem is clearly related to.

Lyric and epic, descriptive and philosophical, this long poem explores length of time as something that, unlike the metaphysical notion of eternity, manifests itself as the sudden irruption of something that returns, dragging us through time and giving us a sense that in human life we have a powerful internal element that is also completely unknown.

A melody to life's brevity and constant movement, An Ode to the Length of Time is a masterpiece of its genre, now published in this extraordinary and classic Eustaquio Barjau translation.
