Re-Inszenierungen von Arturo Larcati

Isolde Schiffermüller

Abstract


This article discusses Giorgio Agamben's commentaries on the work of Ingeborg Bachmann, whom he personally met in Rome. Starting from the premise that the philosopher is concerned neither with the memory of the poetess, nor with an interpretation of her work, the essay aims at a deep investigation of the peculiar proximity and dissimilarity between philosophy and poetry, particularly focusing on the experience of language and on the problem of approaching the unspeakable. In Agamben’s words it can be described as an “experimentum linguae”, which finds its own place in the idea of “language as punishment” (“il linguaggio è la pena”).
