Benjamin famously theorized the newspaper as the generic opposite of storytelling. Although his insights have more often been brought to bear on the novel, much of Benjamin’s argument in “The Storyteller” applies more forcefully to poetry. In his analysis, the news is shallow and ephemeral, whereas the traditional story is, like a poem in Auden’s distillation, strongly oral, mnemonic, and grounded in a long tradition: The value of information does not survive the moment in which it was new. It lives only at that moment; it has to surrender to it completely and explain itself to it without losing any time.
