The Status of Literature in Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit

In Richard T. Gray, Nicholas Halmi, Gary Handwerk, Michael A. Rosenthal & Klaus Vieweg (eds.), Inventions of the Imagination: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the Imaginary since Romanticism. University of Washington Press (2011)
Abstract
Hegel, in a chapter called “Absolute Knowing,” end his most exciting and original work, the Jena Phenomenology of Spirit, with a quotation, or rather a significant misquotation, of a poet? The poet is Schiller and the poem is his 1782 “Freundschaft” (Friendship). This immediately turns into two questions: Why are the last words not Hegel’s own, and why are they rather a poet’s? I will turn to the details in a moment but, as noted, such an inquiry may not be worth the trouble. Authors, even philosophers (who, with only a few exceptions, are not known for their literary style) like to cite poets..
