Abstract [en]

This article focuses on the importance of Hölderlin for Adorno's comprehension of the art–nature relationship. Adorno's most detailed discussion of Hölderlin appears in the essay, "Parataxis: On Hölderlin's Late Poetry." Adorno has been accused of projecting his own philosophical beliefs on Hölderlin. However, I will show that there is valid support in Hölderlin's poetry as well as in his philosophical and poetological writings to reinforce Adorno's claim that Hölderlin’s late poetry is striving to give voice to what is traditionally thought to be art's opposite: nature. The ability of art to mediate nature, and specifically natural beauty, is also of central importance in Adornos Aesthetic Theory, and many of the claims of the "Parataxis" essay re-emerge in this later work.
