Writing poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric

Related: Theodor Adorno - poetry - 1945

After 1945 Theodor Adorno ceased to work as a composer. By taking this step he conformed to his own famous maxim: "writing poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric" (Nach Ausschwitz noch ein Gedicht zu schreiben ist barbarisch). (Adorno was, however, to retract this statement later, saying that "Perennial suffering has as much right to expression as the tortured have to scream... hence it may have been wrong to say that no poem could be written after Auschwitz.") --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodor_Adorno [Feb 2006]
