BREMER, Die Wahl des A q e n blicks in dergriechischen Kunst, Munich, 1969. 28 cc La présence est la seule déesse que j’adore >> Mais les euvres de l’art antique révèlent aussi à Goethe un autre aspect de la présence. I1 ne s’agit plus seulement de la perception d u moment décisif et de l’instant présent, c’est aussi un sens profond de la valeur de la vie, de la «présence» vivante des êtres et des choses, un regard poétique qui sait saisir l’idéal dans la simple réalité. C’est ce que Goethe avait éprouvé, pendant son voyage en Italie, en regardant des stèles funéraires à Vérone : Le vent qui souffle des tombes antiques est chargé de parhms comme s’il passait sur une colline de roses.
