Jan 13, Theresa rated it bacehlard was amazing Shelves: Since I also live almost entirely in the imagination, this book had the odd effect of feeling at once familiar and new. In this way, it is akin to Fspacio, as it descends into dream-space, memory-space, and imaginative space-time to locate the unities that bring about a totality to our lives; in fspacio this was the ideal book to follow a reading of In Search of Lost Timeas both books find their center in the belief in the supremacy of the creative imagination, in the power of the image to retain and affirm all of existence, and the ceaseless pursuit of happiness in the raw material of our lived experiences.


The lonely house in the bachdlard with the lit gastob is more than what it’s physical constituents point towards. While some of his analyses are compelling, his philosophy is heavily grounded in psychoanalysis. I read this book while en route to Las Vegas for a family gathering. As such, he implicitly argues for the universality of image responses – that these poetic images have certain universal resonances.

The Poetics of Space

This is not what I expected. Bachelard’s intention, then, is to create a poetics of metaphysics, abandoning logical preconceptions and prioritising experience: Open Preview See a Problem? The old stone stairs, erected steeply without a support to ascend, the steps of which unites the self with the child within.

Gasron was her hero! Espacko feel right and true, and slip into the reader’s world view with ease. A bestowed mind, when undertaking the poetic journey of imagination, is elated at discovering sudden corners, pathways and bridges which lead to those places where the being surges to acquire intimacy with that notion which transpires oneness with life.

La Poetica del Espacio (English, Spanish, Paperback)

Borrowing Bachelard’s seminal point of contact, his Poetics remains half-open. The book’s meat doesn’t really start until after the introduction which is wordy and self-important and not nearly as good as what follows when the discussion of poetic images begin.

¿Qué es el instante poético, según Gastón Bachelard?

The house itself, when it starts to live humanly, does not lose all its “objectivity”. However, this does not mean that the whole work is invalid.

Sometimes the discovery is not sudden but gradual, brought about by a continuing familiarity with the places. The human consciousness is if anything mutable, it changes willingy and unwillingly, it persistently interacts with the images it has hoarded over the years, it converses with its present surroundings and is in communication with the places it has inhabited in other times.

There’s a strong current of oh my goodness, that’s exactly how it feels that runs through the text for me, and in the end what I find most marvelous is simply that Bachelard manages to bring you so exactly into a shared world of experience. So far, the major insight seems to be that in so far as we grow up in similar environments, we will have similar internal landscapes–and thus be susceptible to similar images.

The book is about space and the philosophy of it.
