Novalis, a poet and mystic influenced by Jacob Boehme
Friedrich von Hardenberg, better known by the name Novalis, remains one of the purest poets who has ever lived. Poetry is at the heart of all his writing. Novalis is not only a poet, but also a mystic, shaped by the influence of Jacob Boehme, and a philosopher. As Frédéric Brun puts it, “Man no longer takes the time to contemplate the grace of things as the young writer Novalis did. His aim was to ‘romanticise the world’ in order to better understand it. For Novalis, a poetic relationship with the world was the most truthful as it enables us to connect with its invisible element. Religion of the heart suits him perfectly. Only love can bring out the best in us. Only love can enable us to develop our qualities. Only love can improve our relationship with the world and offer us a magical bond with it. Only love can draw out poetic brilliance”. Frédéric Brun introduces us to this little known poet and invites us on a journey into the realm of a type of poetry dubbed “original”, “absolute” or “infinite”.
