notes on German philosophy of the Weimar era (1918-33) and visionary writing
Thursday, 5 April 2012
Iain Sinclair, in his review last week of Robert Fraser's Night Thoughts: The Surreal Life of the Poet David Gascoyne [here], reminds us of Gascoyne's status as a 'Christian existentialist'. So maybe I got all this from absorbing The Sun at Midnight c. 1997. Maybe not. But I had been thinking of Herbert Read as representing the only English existentialist, so this is fascinating. Of course then there's Colin Wilson. Iris Murdoch.
