Title: Orientalismo in Friederich Holderlin, Stefan George e Hugo von Hofmannsthal
Authors: Dorr, Georg
Issue Date: 2004
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: After introductory remarks, including mention of the emergence of "Occidentalism", post 9/11, the contribution deals with a selection of the images of the Orient in German and Italian literature, as found in the above-mentioned authors and Gabriele D'Annunzio. These authors' image of the Orient is closely related to their reception of ancient cultures, in particular the Greek culture. With the exception of Holderlin, this reception was determined by Nietzche's own understanding. At the center of the writer's argumentation is the elaboration of he terms "Apollinian" and "Dionysian", whereby the first can be aligned with the female principle and the second with the male (for Hofmannsthal and George, at least). In the case of George and D'Annunzio this type of reception of the Orient and ancient culture leads to a form of intellectual fascism.
