Abstract [en]

Important to the essays here is the possibility of using logos without the

negative, restricting and violent aspects of logos. In this respect I speak

about affirmation and about tragic awareness rather than about the tragic

itself or tragic conflict, as I read texts of a literary democracy that is already

here, texts by Don DeLillo, Tomas Tranströmer, John Ashbery and Thanasis

Valtinos, or see arrangements by Lo Snöfall. Indeed it is all about arrangements,

about knowing how to affirm and doing it rather than using language

and its codes in order to transcribe, however accurate this might be. Arrangements

say yes, since they do not raise any absolute boundaries. The

arrangement is a logos without logos: it is a cosmos, where affirming is a

tragically aware cosmetics. Cosmos is neither the world nor any ordering or

embellishment of this world, but an openness as the incalculable accumulation

of arrangements that say yes in their awareness that they do not amount

to an ontology. Here we can speak about a reverse tragic, one that–unlike

what takes place in Aristotle, Hegel or Nietzsche–imposes order to abyss.
