  The Poetics of Space () by Gaston Bachelard translated by Maria Jolas (, Beacon Press) In , Bachelard published La Poétique de l’Espace – The Poetics of Space – a densely lyrical, almost magical book on our experience of architecture. In it, he courses through the realms we inhabit – indoor and outdoor. In The Poetics of Reverie, Bachelard writes from this place.

Reverie, for Bachelard, is both a place (a noun) and an action (a verb).

Influence on poetics. Art at the beginning of poetics. Two years after from The dialectic of duration, for the first time Bachelard published a book on poetry, The psychoanalysis of fire (La psychanalyse du feu)File Size: KB.

  The Idiosyncrasy and the Poetics of Reading On Octo By Carol Lai In On Literature [Upon re-reading and editing this essay, which was composed four years ago, I still remember vividly how challenging it was to pinpoint the thesis of this highly French and philosophical contemplation on space/place and poetics. A beloved multidisciplinary treatise comes to Penguin Classics Since its initial publication in , The Poetics of Space has been a muse to philosophers, architects, writers, psychologists, critics, and readers alike. The rare work of irresistibly inviting philosophy, Bachelard's seminal work brims with quiet revelations and stirring, mysterious imagery.
