absence makes the heart

“Naming the ‘things that are absent’ is breaking the spell of the things that are; moreover, it is the ingression of a different order of things into the established one — ‘le commencement d’un monde.’

For the expression of this other order, which is transcendence within the one world, the poetic language depends on the transcendent elements in ordinary language. However, the total mobilization of all media for the defense of the established reality has coordinated the means of expression to the point where communication of transcending contents becomes technically impossible.

The spectre that has haunted the artistic consciousness since Mallarme — the impossibility of speaking a nonreified language, of communicating the negative — has ceased to be a spectre. It has materialized.”

— Herbert Marcuse, One-Dimensional Man
