In art there is:

an “essential strife” between two interconnected dimensions of intelligibility (revealing and concealing) which Heidegger calls “world” and “earth” in his most famous work on art.

I claimed, in a very short essay for school, that a particular poet was second rate because their technique begins with unconcealment.

Can world without earth begin an artwork's strife?
