Mother Rachel weeps no more. Carried over: all the weepings. Quiet, in the coronary arteries, unconstricted: Ziv, that light. ” In a brilliant essay, Werner Hamacher discusses the move­ ment o f the figure o f inversion as central to the poetics o f late C e lan , u sin g a po em from Sprachgitter, “ Stimmen,” and concentrating on the line “ sirrt die Sekunde” [the second buzzes] which he de- and re-con­ structs as “diese Kunde” [this message, this conduit o f information]. In a footnote, he includes a brief analysis o f “ Line the word-caves,” which I will cite and let stand as conclusion to my own analysis, if only to show how the poly-perspectivity o f a Celan poem permits multiple approaches, all o f which help to shed light on the wordcaves these late poems are.

The very idea o f trying to meet Celan seemed completely out o f the realm o f possibility at that time, despite the fact that we lived in the same city. Even if I had been less shy and awkward and had attempted to meet him, it would probably not have happened or only as disaster, given my own igno­ rance o f poetry and the world, and Paul Celans inten­ sity during those last years o f his life— an intensity that, I believe, wouldn’t have suffered young fools gladly. There is a further reason: by 19 6 71 had been writing poetry in English for a mere three years, was thus very tentative and explorative in that language, and had just decided to move to the us, leaving behind a Europe I did not want to have any truck with anymore.
