Abstract

This article contends that, despite sharing substantial concerns on the modern dominion of technology and the “aesthetic” conception of art, Celan departs from Heidegger with regard to the role poetry (and art) can and should play on the background of the historical experience of the Shoah. This departure is connected to diverging views of the poetological position occupied by the subject, resulting in irreconcilable views of the ethico-political role of the post-Shoah subject as such.
