WRITING MACHINES (Pisuce stroje)
Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The author of the study pursues the phenomenon of writing machines and the impact of these on writing, or on literature. He writes about the research and conceptions connected with this phenomena (Nietzsche, Kittler, Mallarme and his project “Le Livre”, Heidegger), which led to the opinion that machine writing suppresses the individual handwriting and the sensual experience, the mediator of which used to be literature, or, that it is an obstruction in the effort to reach the truth. The question of writing machine and a quantum of typescript mistakes repeating with a never-ending and unnerving concentration became, in a paradigmatic way, the elements of Tandori's poetry in the 1980s. In the main part of the text, the author studies his 'poetics of machine mistake', which is obviously based on the preconception, or intention, to write the writing as an action into the real time. In comparison he deals with similar phenomena in the poetry of E. Kukorelly, Sz. Borbely, and he also mentions the provoking concept of computer poetry of T. Papp, which can be understood as an answer to the literary experiments of R. Queneau and S. Mallarme.
