The Call to
Destroy Nixon

by Pablo Neruda

translated by Chad Sweeney

[F]rom time to time I must be
a bard of public service,
which is to say that
I must give the lumberjack,
the shepherd, the bricklayer, the farm-hand,
the gasfitter or any poor foot soldier,
the power to break free with a clean punch
or to release the madness
like flames from his ears.

“If there is a country named Celania—as Julia Kristeva once proposed—its holy texts are filled with doubt, and they overcome this doubt almost successfully, with words of wrenching, uncompromised beauty...The book in your hands is not intended to become one of those heavy scholarly tomes that serve as a “proof” of one’s position in the literary/academic hierarchy. Rather, this is a collection of various works, directed at, or inspired by, the words of Paul Celan. What we wanted to make was a living anthology, in which authors observe the poet’s work, read it deeply, penetrate and discuss it, but also play with it, remake it, and attempt to fit it into their own worldviews. A great poet is not someone who speaks in stadiums to a thousand listeners. A great poet is a very private person. In his privacy this poet creates a language in which he is able to speak, privately, to many people at the same time.”
