Poet 2

In front of

this object of knowledge

the poet’s eyes

burn

with curiosity,

with sympathy,

with understanding, because in that phenomenon

he sees something he would like to have himself,

but as he is

a young fifteen-year-old poet,

he doesn’t have it that way.

Poet 1

Posted in '900, Giussani by martalorenza on August 19, 2010

The content of experience is reality.

 A man is in love with a girl:

that is a fact,

it is a phenomenon.

The poet is wandering, his hands in his pockets,

and runs into that fact.

 This fact enters his eyes horizon,

that is to say it becomes part of the sphere of his knowledge.

This is the beginning of the phenomenon, but it is not all.

 Luigi Giussani, Is it (really?!) possible to live this way?
