La aventura sin fin by T. S. Eliot

By T. S. Eliot

Además de uno de los grandes poetas del XX, T.S. Eliot fue el crítico más ambicioso y exhaustivo de su generación. Desde l. a. primera década del siglo pasado hasta su muerte en 1965, ejerció una rotunda autoridad en los angeles literatura anglosajona que le llevó a revisar toda los angeles literatura occidental: desde Virgilio, Dante y los isabelinos hasta Donne, los románticos y Yeats con el secreto propósito de acreditar l. a. revolución poética que llevó a cabo con La tierra baldía o Cuatro cuartetos.

El presente volumen propone un recorrido cronológico por los ensayos más importantes y menos divulgados en español que el poeta escribió entre 1919 y 1961. Dueño de una intimidante cultura, capaz de encararse a los más grandes aunque se llamen Shakespeare o Milton, inigualable lector del detalle, provocador insaciable, Eliot se demuestra todavía en estas páginas como el verdadero guía, señor y maestro de los angeles modernidad.

Example text

For the moment, the profane is a condition and the construction of agency in this world. Agency, in other words, is here conceived independently of the idea of a divine kingdom, for while agency has a practical, almost visceral meaning, the kingdom of God does not. It is most clearly not political. Moreover, this distinction is quite apparent if one considers the problem of revelation: for revelation without divine intention contravenes the first postulate of the theory of attributes, that God is all-knowing, which situates the divine realm far from sensory experience.

He continues: For empirical events time is nothing but a form, but, what is more important, as a form it is unfulfilled. The event does not fulfill the formal nature of the time in which it takes place. For we should not think of time as merely the measure that records the duration of a mechanical change. 89 In an early text Scholem composed for Benjamin as a birthday gift in July 1918, entitled “Ninety-five Theses on Judaism and Zionism,” he captures the relevance of this notion for their early discourse.

The central position played by the Messiah in the first two narratives becomes all but secondary here. What is important in Lurianic theory is the role of humanity in initiating the messianic age. The standard dimensions of Jewish messianism—a Messiah without features, yet one preforming distinct, predesignated historical acts—are naturally not lost here. Yet the role of human agency takes on new importance, heralding a revolutionary interpretation of redemption that has profoundly influenced the messianic idea in Judaism up to the present.
