The Broken Voice of the Poetry——The Interpretation of Paul Celan's Poem "Voices"

WU Jian-guang (Department of German,Tongji University,Shanghai 200092,China)  
The poetry collection Speech-Grille(Sprachgitter) by Paul Celan,published in 1959, which represents the beginning of the obscure language and the poetry fragmentation and records the painful life as well as the longing for death of the poet,marks the new climax of his poetry.Because of the leading place in the collection,it is important to interpret the poem "Voices"(Stimmen), decoding the mystery and reconstructing the intact poetry,in order to understand the voices in the whole collection.Although many scholars have tried to interpret this poem,hardly one insists on the motives,namely the love for mother and the death.Moreover,the dialectical relationship between individuality and universality is remarkable in the poem:on one hand,it alienates the Greek myths, reconstructs the biblical stories and so arrives with the experiences in the depths of the feeling;on the other hand,the individual remembrance of mother,based on the intertextuality of the mythical and religious stories as well and the history,passes through personal feelings to the universality of the pain of memories.This paper attempts to reflect the whole picture by analyzing the broken structure of the poetry and elucidate the motives of death and love,so one can hear the voices of the German poetry with language debris.
