I will most certainly be getting to writing a review of this work once I am up to the task. The importance of this book demands it. And though I realize I have been perhaps infinitely deferring the composition of reviews lately (due to health reasons, accompanied by moving and displacement), I hope the summer will allow me to return to those books that have recently slipped past the scrutiny of my pen and my thought.
Has a useful essay on Holderlin and the double swerve (absence) of man and the gods. See my translation with Maxine Chernoff of Holderlin's "The Poet's Vocation," to which Lacoue-Labarthe refers, in Selected Poems of Friedrich Holderlin, to appear in September 2008 from Omnidawn Publishing.
