"Now: it has already ceased to be since it was pointed out; the now that is is an other than that pointed out to us, it is what has been."
(Hegel, The Phenomenology of Spirit)

The now, by virtue of its ephemerality, presents a series of problems for attempts to define it. Along with its deictic counterpart the here, it resists the fixity of any determinate content. Yet this very quality of now simultaneously includes a generative power—as demonstrated by ongoing attempts to conceptualize, interpret, produce or poeticize the now.
