THE MOBILE MAN OR PARAPHRASE
ON THE THEME "THE WANDERING JEW"
The constantly increasing man's mobility is an evident mark of the late modernity. While the rise of physical mobility does not arouse any doubt, the mental mobility remains a matter still open for discussion. The present text makes attempts in two aspects:
to analyze the matter of mental mobility from the viewpoint of the sensitivity and creativity specific for art which transforms the general picture of real life and the notion of man into an image of real life and man's attitude towards it;
to launch the thesis of pluralism when interpreting the work of art as an aspect of the matter of mental mobility.
The analysis of the above problems is based on a fragment of Simeon Yanev's novel "Biographies of Riff-Raff".
The article aims to propose a philosophical-anthropological view over the poet’s figure. Some questions are unveiled, such as: How does the creator control the matter, how he opposes the pencil’s substance to the paper’s one? How does the matter sway the poet’s mind throughout the images of past events, deep waters, wild winds, transparent skies? How these images in the poetry art provoke and influence upon the reader? What is the role of the poet? What distinguishes him from other authors? What is the language’s role in the act of creation? These questions bring some new aspects to the task of metaphysical thinking of the human being as a personality, which reveals itself supported by poetry and dreams. The act of self-expression by means of poetry is related to the idea of breaking from every day life with a special way of communication, with the poetry’s language, which conceals the ordinary and makes an allusion to the secret, the unspeakable, the unconscious.
