why should one care about what heidegger says?

*Er selbst bevorzugte undurchdringlich Klarheit*

Modernism, Heidegger held, reached its destitution as it served to block
our access to the pull of oblivion. While Rilke showed how we are ushered
("ventured") forth to the Open, there is a complementary pull to a
withdrawing of existence. As we are drawn to this withdrawing, Heidegger
noted, we become marked by this very withdrawal. It is this gravitational
pull of the withdrawal that is denied by modernism, and hence makes it
worthy of the term "destitution".
What is the task of poetry today? Heidegger is very clear on this: it is
to prepare the ground for a renewed openess to the pull of oblivion.
