THEODOR ADORNO d AUG 6 1969
"To still write a poem after Auschwitz is barbaric."
adorno wasn't above changing his position about things. he is a major thinker from a great school of philosophy(frankfurt school)& should be studied for his contributions to philosophy, sociology, & aesthetics. he loved music. he died during the summer of love, my summer of lust. i'm not sure he would have approved of either.
"Perennial suffering has as much right to expression as the tortured have to scream... hence it may have been wrong to say that no poem could be written after Auschwitz."
