Being does not see itself. I used to retain a vivid and unmistakable memory of lying in bed as an infant in a dark, warm room and heari Imagine you’re magically transported back to your first home. In the realm of absolute imagination, we remain young late in life.

The work was digressive, but not difficult to follow. I thought this was an interesting book which started off well but I sort of lost interest in it near the end. The rest of the book is an application of this theory to various poetic images – mostly relating, in some way, to the home.


If you are a seeker in the realm of man’s psyche then your thirst will not be left parched. Sight says too many things at one time. His analysis of the poetic image is unique and, I think, quite beautiful. What is marvelous about it, though, is that you don’t need to understand most of it to get a great deal of plea I do absolutely love this book, and it became in many ways a kind of manifesto for me.

And I felt at once as though Bachelard was right in saying that ” [W]e are very surprised, when we return to the bachealrd house, after an odyssey of many years, to find that the most delicate gestures, the earliest gestures suddenly come alive, are still faultless.

Forgive me if that sounds either lazy or willfully ignorant, but I don’t feel the need pketica pretend I gasyon wrap my head around everything he said, especially in translation, and I think that the book is strengthened, not weakened, by the fact that the most beautiful and elegant things he has to say stand on their own so completely.

As an adult pairing to my favorite childhood book “The Little Princess,” by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this book similarly relishes its own reveries as rich ends unto themselves while also examining the important inversions of the poetic image as sustenance.

But Bachelard’s further investigation is proving a bit difficult for me. It wasn’t even the tossed words salads he threw together on every page. The citations refer to the poetic, not the philosophical.

Then, xel we could say how we imagine, we cease to imagine. Some of the best bits were: Bachelard is trying to understand the “happy mind” – the mind making itself a home everywher I’ve failed to explain Bachelard to so many people by now that I should know better.

The vast majority of the book is spent in this image analysis, and is pretty hit and miss.
