There has been more chaos happening in my personal life over the past few months than I care to discuss, but this book has given me a nice periodic retreat into contemplation and a soothing outlook on more permanent things.

No trivia or quizzes yet. I also appreciated the importance he attributed to poetry.

La Poetica del Espacio (English, Spanish, Paperback)

It just goes to show that the transitive property of literary taste isn’t very reliable. Not to fill it up brashly with idle talk, but to consecrate it with voices which will increase the silence. Reveries of the places of his childhood — the house he lived in. Every book reflects the intellectual fashions of the time, so I was willing to give him a pass on that. He whispers bachekard you everything you’ve always known, intimate knowledge that we all share wordlessly, yet he increases its mystery by speaking poeticw it in a hush of clarity that does not defile the subject matter as psychologists, philosophers, or psychoanalysts do.

And yet it’s not surprising to me to confirm that this book is indeed assigned reading for some collegiate architectural programs– part of its mission seems to be to open up drl realization of space and place to something far beyond geography and mathematical calculation.

Through meaning it encloses, while through poetic expression, it opens up. As such, Bachelard’s favorite word in the book is “daydreaming” – the course that your mind is set on after reading a particularly resonant image. Bachelard is concerned with this topic, how the imagination processes space and transfers it to memory, to art, to awareness. A house that espacjo been experienced is not an inert box. My hopes for an intelligent reading of intimate and public spaces were squashed by Bachelard’s constant quoting of Rilke and endless pages about snails in their shells.

See 1 question about The Poetics of Space…. As one reads, one takes shorthand from the philosopher’s imagination. Abchelard what is unspeakable is also exactly where poets must venture forth a primitive utterance.

I’ve never really decided how I really feel bacjelard this text. Published by Beacon first published But we do know that it comes from beyond a wind that dies down or a vaston that grows gentle. Also, anyone who loves Charles Baudelaire has got to read it. The things that work are SO wonderful, but I still can’t make head or tail of phenomenology in general and plenty of this de, in particular.

In this way, it is akin to Proust, as it descends into dream-space, memory-space, and imaginative space-time to locate the unities that bring about a totality to our lives; in fact this was the ideal book to follow a reading of In Search of Lost Timeas both books find their center in the belief in the supremacy of the creative imagination, in the power of the image to retain and affirm all of existence, and the ceaseless pursuit of happiness in the raw material of our lived experiences.

This book, despite its bachekard with architects, is just what it says on the label: Each line he writes is filled with the wonder of a man who stops to smell the flowers and rediscovers the meaning in life in that infinitely small gesture. It’s very very French, full of “we” and assumptions, and I find drl protesting at all this business about cellars and attics and how hurricanes make homes more comforting–I’m a Floridian, and we don’t have cellars or attics, though we do have hurricanes, espaco ones, which often do not make homes more comfortable.

Inspired, meaningful ruminations on dwellings, spaces. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

I live in the American Southwest, and images of basements and attics and forests don’t speak to my home. Some of the best bits were: His analysis of the poetic image is unique and, I think, quite beautiful.

You enjoy the warmth because you know it’s cold! It makes sense then that he uses poets and writers as the basis for his study of intimate spaces. These are not esoteric overly metaphysical spaces.


Rania rated it really liked it. It can unravel some deep-seeded gastln in your writing that can open opportunities for dealing with formerly obsecure insecurities. Being does not see itself. May 28, Tedb0t rated it liked it Shelves: His section on “intimate immensity” in Baudelaire’s poems is just beautiful. When he states that values alter facts I know this whole phenomenology business has gone not just straight to his head, but espaio it, and good.

In the realm of absolute imagination, we remain young late in life.

Bzchelard 26, Jimmy rated it it was amazing Shelves: The vast majority of the book is spent in this image analysis, and is pretty hit and miss. It is also a very French book, and not just all of France even, as it doesn’t really deal with the sea or the coast, but rather with the plain and forest and the city. But Bachelard’s further investigation is proving a bit difficult for me. For once, someone does not miss the whole point!

Bachelard starts The Espacii of Space with a reference to the poetic image: Open Preview See a Problem? It should beware of the privileges of evidence that are the property of geometrical intuition.

I read this book while en route to Las Vegas for a family gathering. As other reviewers have noted, it is almost difficult to speak about where reading Bachelard leaves you once you have raised your eyes from the page and attempted again to view the world through the lens of your own perceptions after they have been filtered through his prism: Indeed, every great image has an unfathomable oneiric depth to which the personal past adds special colour.

These are two ways of understanding place, and an argument can certainly be made that there is a poetry in them, but there are many other ways as well, methods less quantifiable or even definable.
