Novalis Ü Heinrich von Ofterdingen EBOOK

Edievale l'Ofterdingen appunto i cui tratti vengono però trasfigurati e fatti propri dall'autore stesso Il medioevo di Novalis è in realtà l'universo della sua filosofia in cui I laughed when I read many of the reviews on this book after the fact I had not read any reviews when I started this book and I'm not sure I would have started if I'd read many of the lack luster reviews I found this book when researching a line from CS Lewis' Surprised by Joy wherein Lewis describes himself as a “votary of the blue flower” which turned out to be a reference to German Romanticism specifically the works of Novalis Why is German Romanticism symbolized by a blue flower? Apparently it is a direct result of this seminal work by Friedrich von Hardenberg also known as Novalis So I set out to read this seminal work to decipher the mystery of the blue flower and see if I myself might not become familiar with what Lewis knew Looking back at the reviews now I see that this book was on a list of “1001 books to read before you die” which seems to have inspired many other readers to give this book a try with rather elevated hopes I had no idea I was one book closer to being able to pass on peacefullyIn short I would say that my grand experiment in discovering what Lewis had discovered failed While so many other experiments in reading the books that inspired those who inspired me have paid off deliciously I think I lacked the appropriate background to fully appreciate this book on the first pass Setting aside the admittedly grandiose preconceived notions my thoughts on this book are mostly positiveThe character of Henry is somewhat flat for my tastes He is a young man who is trying to figure out what the world is all about via the tales and education he gets from others while he himself seems relatively un experienced at the beginning of the book He is definitely a dreamer and others see him as a poet From my experience the main attraction in Henry is that he seems to come into contact with interesting people and through him we get to hear their stores Possibly this is a commentary on the nature of the poet that their purpose is to get out of the way and let the stories shine? It seems like Novalis is alluding to this dichotomy between “doers” and “thinkers” in the beginning of chapter 6 where he discussing the nature of heroes and poets a part of the book I found fascinatingAfter finishing those parts of the book that the author finished before dying I was sufficiently interested to be sad that it wasn’t finished In style this book reminded me of a combination of the Canterbury tales and the Faerie ueene Like Canterbury tales there is a journey involved as well as freuently a story within a story construction and like the Faerie ueene Novalis used much strong imagery and freuently poetry to convey a sense of mysticismAs this is such a short book and was so densely packed with interesting concepts I would have no ualms recommending this book to anyone genuinely interested in fantasy romantic writings or even philosophy however I could not in good conscience recommend it to anyone looking for a good light readOne of my favorite uotes describes the since of closeness and connection the character Henry feels for his newly discovered love Mathilda “She put a wondrous secret word into his mouth and it rang through his whole being He was about to repeat it when his grandfather called and he awoke He would have given his life to remember that word” I found this to be hauntingly beautiful
