Sovereignties in Question: The Poetics of Paul Celan.

Jacques Derrida wrote twice, in 1984 in "Shibboleth" and in 2002 for his Paris seminar lectures, about "The Meridian," Paul Celan's Georg Büchner prize speech that forms the most elaborate exposition of the poet's poetics. In both readings Derrida, in one way or the other, deals with the question of time. In "Shibboleth," at stake is the notion of date; in the seminar lectures, the "other's time. Sovereignties in Question: The Poetics of Paul Celan. Writing as spacing : philosophy, litterature, and the work of Jacques Derrida /. Article.

Contents Shibboleth: For Paul Celan A Self-Unsealing Poetic Text: Poetics .

Contents• Shibboleth: For Paul Celan• “A Self-Unsealing Poetic Text”: Poetics and Politics of Witnessing• Language Does Not Belong: An Interview• The Majesty of the Present: Reading Celan’s “The Meridian”• Rams: Uninterrupted Dialogue―between Two Infinities, the Poem

This book brings together five powerful encounters. Themes central to all ofDerrida’s writings thread the intense confrontation between the most famousphilosopher of our time and the Jewish poet writing in German who, perhapsmore powerfully than any other, has testified to the European experience ofthe twentieth century.

They include the date or signature and its singularity; the notion of the trace;temporal structures of futurity and the “to come”; the multiplicity of languageand questions of translation; such speech acts as testimony and promising, butalso lying and perjury; the possibility of the impossible; and, above all, the questionof the poem as addressed and destined beyond knowledge, seeking to speak toand for the irreducibly other.

The memory of encounters with thinkers who have also engaged Celan’s workanimates these writings, which include a brilliant dialogue between twointerpretative modes―hermeneutics and deconstruction. Derrida’s approach toa poem is a revelation on many levels, from the most concrete ways of reading―for example, his analysis of a sequence of personal pronouns―to the mostsweeping imperatives of human existence (and Derrida’s writings are alwaysa study in the imbrication of such levels). Above all, he voices the call toresponsibility in the ultimate line of Celan’s poem: “The world is gone,I must carry you,” which sounds throughout the book’s final essay like a refrain.

Only two of the texts in this volume do not appear here in English for the first time. Of these, Schibboleth has been entirely retranslated and has been set following Derrida's own instructions for publication in French; "A Self-Unsealing Poetic Text" was substantially rewritten by Derrida himself and basically appears here as the translation of a new text.
