Skriv med Duras

At skrive er ikke en skrivehåndbog med punkter og tips til struktur eller stil – det er en fortrolig undersøgelse af skriftens vilkår når både sensitivitet, tvivl og klarsyn bliver en del af forfatterens arbejde.

Sproget er fattet og alligevel skrøbeligt: “Jeg ved ikke, hvordan jeg er kommet ud af det, man kunne kalde en krise, som man kunne kalde et nervøst sammenbrud eller et anfald af sløvhed, skrøbelighed, som om det var en forstilt søvn.”

Duras skriver i begyndelsen at gode bøger rodfæster sig i “det fælles sted for enhver tanke” – og det er dér man kommer hen sammen med Duras.

Shadows in the Cave. Revisiting Mats Rosengren’s Doxology
Shadows in the Cave. Revisiting Mats Rosengren’s Doxology

Caves, images, and symbols are recurring topics in the work of Mats Rosengren, from his reading of Plato in his dissertation Psychagōgia – Konsten att leda själar, to his investigation of the world of paleolithic cave art in Cave Art, Perception and Knowledge. While other philosophers might have descended into the cave with the aim of guiding visitors back up into the blinding light of eternal truths, Rosengren seems to be at home in the underworld. Instead of dismissing the paintings that adorn its walls as merely shadowy copies or distorted images, or claiming that the truth of these pictures is readily available to us, Mats Rosengren invites any traveler joining him to understand them as different forms of sensemaking, forms which at first might appear foreign, but that, upon closer inspection, reveal themselves in all their complexity. In this volume, the contributors take on some of the key themes found in Rosengren’s work, mirroring the stylistic, generic, and topical range that characterizes it. The volume is titled “Shadows in the Cave”, signaling a focus not on eternal truth, but – alluding to Plato – on the shadowplay of our human caves. Läs mer...
