Example text

One could say that the subject in the poem is not simply the placer of the jar, since all that takes place as a result of that emplacement takes place in and for the presence of this same human “I,” who is at once speaker, placer, poet, and reader. To be human means to be the surrounding center of such world-forming intentionality. I agree with Harries, David Kolb, Edward Casey, and others who have meditated in depth on this topic and concluded that no one has thought more radically and originally about the nature of place than Heidegger.

Can we even imagine a house without windows? Yes, but we would say of it that it is more like a tomb than a house. It is appropriate for the dead to inhabit such coffined spaces in which they are protected from the bluster of the world (and the world from them), but we the living make other demands on our homes. In the same way that we expect a coffin to be as hermetically sealed as possible, we expect a house to open onto its surroundings. We require or desire that it contain within its space the presence of what is external to its walls.

The Sicilian baron in one of Pirandello’s stories is no doubt a savvy realist when he remarks to his daughter that the reason he stubbornly refuses to allow his peasants to bury their dead on his land is because they would promptly come to believe that the land belonged to them by natural right. The surest way to take possession of a place and secure it as one’s own is to bury one’s dead in it.
