In three beautifully wrought meditations on the import of Ren Descartes' legacy from a poet's perspective, Durs Grnbein presents us with a Descartes whom we haven't met before: not the notorious perpetrator of the mind-body-dualism, the arch-villain of Rationalism but the inspired and courageous dreamer, explorer, and fabulist. Reading Descartes against the grain of the widely accepted view of the philosopher as the proponent of a cut-and-dried, disembodied, and, hence, misguided view of humanity, Grnbein discloses the profoundly humane and poetic underpinnings of the legacy of this "modern man par excellence," and, by extension, of modernity as a whole. Uncovering the poetic foundations of Descartes' rationalism and, concomitantly, the poetic lining of the mantle of reason, Durs Grnbein, one of the world's greatest living poets and essayists, shows us that reason is never more alive than when it is most poetic.

"Wenn Deutschland ein Konigreich ware, dann ware Durs Grunbein [...] der Dichterfurst" (Die ZEIT), ein "Gotterliebling" (Seibt), die "erste genuine Stimme der neuen Republik" (Schirrmacher), "Durs Grunbein ist das Edelste, was die deutsche Lyrik heute zu bieten hat" (Die ZEIT). Superlative gibt es viele, die seit Mitte der 1990er Jahre bemuht wurden, um den Dichter Durs Grunbein ins rechte Licht zu setzen. Seine Gedichte und Essays initiieren, begleiten und kommentieren intellektuelle Diskurse, eroffnen historische Raume, knupfen an, fuhren weiter bzw. ad absurdum. Begleitet werden die Gedichte von regelmassigen poetologischen Essays, die den Resonanzraum der Gedichte thematisieren und einen Dialog mit den grossen Poetologien des 19. und vor allem des 20. Jahrhunderts eroffnen. Diese Schrift verdeutlicht den Zusammenhang von Poetologie und Poesie bei Durs Grunbein, setzt dabei das poetologische mit dem poetischen Werk in ein Verhaltnis und stellt heraus, wo die poetologischen Wurzeln von Grunbeins Poetik im Kontext der grossen Poetologien des 20. Jahrhunderts zu lokalisieren sind. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf der Entschlusselung des poetologischen Eigenwerts der Poes
