Labor is continuous with nature for Arendt: it is ‘the activity which corresponds to the biological process of the human body’ (1970: 7). Arendt agrees with Marx insofar as he defined labor as man’s metabolism with nature. Her criticism of Marx’s socialism is that it turns the natural necessity of labor into the universal ideal of a society in which ‘all things would be understood not in their worldly, objective quality, but as the results of living labor power and functions of the life process’ (Arendt 1970: 89).

The poems are always somehow at the back of my mind. 1 I wish to suggest that there is an element of das Gedichtete in Arendt’s thinking and writing about the world. For her, the world, as it appears in various formulations – the world of fabricated things, the human world of action and speech, worldliness, worldlessness, world alienation – is never simply an object of description but the figure of an evocation, an intonation or an attunement that turns her thought to a realm and reference that is never precisely captured by the descriptions she does provide.
