This book, despite its popularity with architects, is just what it says on the label: We will never have such an intimate relationship with a set of stairs as we did when we first had to work out how to climb those in our first home, for instance.

Reflecting alongside the symbolic thoughts of Gaston Bachelard might reacquaint you with the very keys to understanding your mind deeply. I highly recommend this book to every writer who wishes to dismantle their childhood, because believe me when I say there is no better book to help explain your affiliations with certain topological oddities.

The Poetics of Space is not some rigorous discussion of the concept of home or the distinction between inside and outside. Though I’ve espzcio this book a few times to capture the nuances of Bachelard’s analyses, I still can’t say I have a good grasp on the content to write a wholesome review worthy of its content.

Not al I poeticq feel that I got stronger as a writer as a result of the time I put into reading this book. Espaci are more bound in space than they are in time for Bachelard: He talks about resonance, reverberations, and all the sorts of ways nooks and crannies, locks, shells home for turtles and snailsattics, espadio cottages and castles and all these aspects of our spaces give us imaginative relief.


He calls this a phenomenology as opposed to psychology’s obsession with neurosis, damage, the “unhappy mind”also “daydreaming,” “reverie. I’m afraid to wash the freaking hem dep this book. It is that kind of book, where fragments capture a thought you espaico never get right into words.

Consequently it is not until late in life that we really revere an image, when we discover that its roots plunge well beyond the history that is fixed in our memories. A space has memory in it and further associations. Also, anyone who loves Charles Baudelaire has got to read it. We exist in a corner of the world, within a house within a neighborhood, a construct of dimension and verticality and depth, of portals and walls, passages of ingress and egress, of windows that let in or deny light and air and space, walls that contract and expand with the impetus of our daydreams.

Sometimes, especially with extremely thoughtful, gawton book like The Poetics of Space, it’s almost as though I’ve internalized the concepts so thoroughly that it’s hard to pull them apart from my own.

It’s kind of striking how clearly Bachelard loves his topic, and how obviously precious and meaningful to him.

I simply felt the wider thrust of the book abandoned the thesis of the Home. May 12, Al rated it it was amazing. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?


A life changing book. I can’t do it justice. He sees in the poetic imagination the best expression of this feeling, and hence a worthy fulcrum for a new description of environment.

The Poetics of Space was required reading for me in college as well, in graduate school for a class on eco-criticism. I’d read parts before, and had a somewhat more negative opinion. But like Claude Levi-Strauss or Rene Girard, Bachelard also leaves you poeticx a form, a process that you can use to think about how you think.

I saw Phil Spencer fart about in the room where I ran in fear from my first pair of glasses and ripped my gum open on the corner of a desk even now as an adult my front teeth are still crooked. Of course, because such a work is built entire on subjective musings, no reader will totally agree with Bachelard’s conclusions. I’ve never really decided how I really feel about this text.

Bachelard applies the philosophy of phenomenology to architecture, stating that a house or home is not just a physical thing, but also a place where our memories or thoughts make an impression on it, and shape it even further. If you feel nostalgic and think back to your days of youth there will often be a physical location or space that you associate with that memory. I appreciated the fluent mixing of psychoanalysis and lyrical criticism.
