Romantic Poetry and Self-Consciousness

Yesterday on KPFA 94.1 FM, Jack Foley hosted the prequel to an 8-part series based on Poems for the Millennium Volume Three, edited by Jerome Rothenberg and Jeffrey C. Robinson.

In yesterday’s episode, Foley read “Hamlet, Keats, La Conscience de Soi”, thoughts on romantic poetry and self-consciousness, from his Alsop Review column Foley’s Books.

“La conscience de soi est une nouvelle modalité du savoir, c’est un savoir de soi, un retour de la conscience depuis l’être-autre.”
—French Wikipedia on Hegel
