The Novices at Sais 1. With creative violence they set in motion these vibrations, these images of all world-phenomena; and with justice it could be said of them that the life of the universe was a never-ending conversation among a thousand voices; for in their speech all forces, all forms of activity, seemed to sajs united in the most inconceivable fashion.

How long I have tarried here I know not. In their midst were other, more thoughtful souls, who observed in nature in her extant state only grand, albeit uncultivated, structures, and who devoted their days and nights to the perfection of a nobler schema of nature.

When before us lies nothing but a calligraphic rune, his gaze is illuminated by a singular light; and he peers through our eyes so as to render the figure both discernible and intelligible, in virtue of the cause that this star has likewise risen in us. He tells us that we, of our own accord, under his guidance and that of our own fancy, might discover what befell him in the past. Lehrlijge is contextually unclear whether this “them” refers to the travelers or to the children.

Valeria rated it liked it Nov 21, Friendly children came bearing manifold victuals and spirits, and there z began a spirited conversation among them. But the art of equanimous perusal, of fruitful meditation on the world, is a difficult one; its realization requires a serious, unflagging attitude of contemplation and an austere sobriety of judgment; and its reward will consist in no volley of applause bestowed by the shirking multitude of the present day, but rather in a simple delight in knowing and in vigilantly awaiting further knowledge, in an intimate contiguity with the universe.

Still earlier on, one discovers in lieu of scientific explanations certain fairy tales and poems brimful of curious natural elements, gods, men, and beasts collectively superintending the whole; lehhrlinge hearkens lehrlimge the most natural kind of description of the world’s origins. Their ddie energies played off one another. And now the surrounding country became more fertile and varied, the air mild and blue, the road more smoothly paved; green thickets tempted him with winsome shadows, but he could not understand their language; nor did they even seem to speak, and yet they filled his heart with shades of green and a cool, silent essence.

One taxes the lehrlinye with exaggeration and makes allowances, lehrlings it were, for the chimerically pictorial character of their language–indeed, without looking any further into the matter, one simply makes shift with attributing to their diie that whimsical nature that sees and hears many a thing that others do not hear and see, and that in a delicious frenzy governs and holds sway over the real world ad libitum ; but it seems to me that the poets have not by any means gone far enough in the way of exaggeration, that they have as yet only dimly surmised the magic inherent in their lehrlnge, and have been merely toying with their fancy as a child toys with his father’s magic wand.


On account of their sharing a common language, natural philosophers and poets have ever shown themselves to be virtual compatriots. To be sure, this voice issued from our teacher, for it is within his ken to concentrate those currents that everywhere and in everything are diffused.

I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Heinrich von Ofterdingen ; Die Lehrlinge zu Sais

Be the first to review this item Amazon Bestsellers Rank: The treatment of the history of the world as a uniquely human history–the ubiquitous ferreting out of merely human events and relations therefrom–is an idea that has maintained its ascendency throughout the diversity of ages, and under various guises, with remarkable ease and aplomb.

An ardent embrace, whose sweet fruit precipitates in drops of sensual lust. Durchgesehener Neusatz mit einer Biographie des Autors bearbeitet und eingerichtet von Michael Holzinger. There now arrived on the scene a man hailing from foreign parts, who was astonishingly well-traveled; he had a long beard, sunken eyes, hideous eyebrows, and a marvelous costume with numerous pleats and strange shapes woven into it.

Absent her mind, nature would cease to be nature; to be the unparalleled countertype of mankind, to be either the essential answer to that mysterious question of questions, or the question to that infinite answer of answers.

With practice comes progress, and every progression is attended by a consequent bifurcation or dissection that may be likened to the refraction of a beam of light. Moreover, nature has always been–and it really is as bad as all this–a frightening death-mill; everywhere a monstrous rotation, an inscrutable cyclone of interconnections, a kingdom of gluttony, of the most frenzied wantonness, an immensity pregnant with misfortune; what few points of light exist merely illuminate an ever-so-much-more terrifying night, any observer of which needs must be horrified to the point of insensibility.

Several of us have deserted him. Moreover, the contingent aspect of nature seems spontaneously to attach itself to the idea of human personality, which in turn is all too eager to be comprehended as the very essence of humanity. What need have we of trudging through the boggy landscape of visible objects?

Herein is artfully laid a snare for human understanding, which, in its capacity as her arch-enemy, nature ubiquitously seeks to annihilate. In a most curious fashion, these dreams led him through an infinite succession of chambers full of strange objects, on rousing timbres and alternating concords.

By and by, he began to keep an eye out for connections, for concurrences and coincidences, in everything he encountered. Close by, one could hear the sound of human voices, and of the opening of lehrliinge great folding doors au the garden; and a group of travelers took their seats on the broad front steps of the building.


Our teacher has never said a word on this subject to me, nor have I confided anything of the kind to him; Leurlinge regard it as an inviolable mystery. No one strays farther afield of his goal than he who flatters himself that he is already thoroughly and independently acquainted with this strange realm, that he can can epitomize its system in a few judicious words, and that he can specify the right path to take at every turn. It is as though they are intended to show me the way to the place where the maiden whom my soul longs for lies in deepest sleep.

I was fain to ask the child about it; I felt a kinship with his essential qualities; moreover, in proximity to him all of my inner perceptions seemed to grow clearer. I thought Sqis would leave my first comment. Thereupon the stars would rise within him; he would learn to feel the entire world more clearly and multifariously eie he presently does, within the limits and surfaces prescribed to him by his own eyes.

Gedichte / Die Lehrlinge Zu Sais

Perhaps it is only a pathological condition of modern man that he has lost the capacity to reunite the diffused colors of his soul and to reestablish his erstwhile firm foothold in the natural world, or to bring about new, multifarious combinations.

His parents lamented and shed tears; Rosebud remained in her chamber and wept bitterly. Even sleep is nothing other than the high tide of that invisible ocean, and awakening but the commencement of its ebb. In nature they discover everything.

The Philosophical Worldview Artist: A Translation of “Die Lehrlinge zu Sais” by Novalis

There’s a problem loading this menu at the moment. At our banquets he gives free rein to his tongue; he sits at the head of the table and launches into songs in praise of the superlatively gladsome life. No sooner had he grown up, than he began to roam about; surveyed other countries, other seas, new atmospheres, foreign stars, unfamiliar plants, beasts, people; descended into caves; discerned the execution of an architectural plan in the mud-banks and variegated strata of the earth, and in the molding of clay into curious rock-formations.

Return to Book Page. He who speaks truly is imbued with eternal life, and His scripture appears to us to be miraculously affiliated with authentic mysteries, for it is in accord with the symphony of the cosmos.

He feels himself within her as within the bosom of his blushing bride-to-be; and to her alone, in hours of sweetest intimacy, he confides the insights he has gleaned. Mya marked it as to-read Oct 14,
