La rappresentazione del rituale di poesia nel ciclo «Waller im Schnee» di Stefan George

Studia theodisca
Publication Date
  • Literature


This paper focuses on para-religious elements in the poetry of Stefan George, with reference to the cycle Waller im Schnee, which occupies the middle of the first section in the collec­tion Das Jahr der Seele (1897). The waning of the sentimental relationship between the protagonist and his interlocutor is linked to the loss of effectiveness of a priestly ritual, which in the past had held the two together and whose significance has now diminished through perplexity and misunderstanding.
