Notes 1 On Heidegger’s interpretation of poetry, see Heidegger’s Ways (Gadamer: 1994). Malpas (2006: 211–305) argues for the emphatic significance of place and space in Heidegger’s drawing together of poetizing and thinking. On Benjamin and literature, see Theodor Adorno’s ‘A Portrait of Walter Benjamin’ (Adorno: 1967, 227–43). Arendt herself concluded her memorial essay on Benjamin with the comment that he possessed ‘the gift of thinking poetically’ (Arendt 1973: 203; Arendt’s emphasis). 2 The specific intimacies and warmth of worldlessness are not restricted to the involuntarily worldless peoples such as the pre-war European Jews but occur as well in the context of the voluntary eschewal or retreat from the world that Arendt locates in the ‘Christian principle of worldlessness’, and in the turn to inwardness as a response to an ‘estrangement from the world’ that she finds in the Stoic philosophers of late antiquity.
