5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle and enlightening
I read this for a book group, otherwise I probably wouldn't have picked it up; really glad I did though! It is subtly written and fascinating. I had to look up lots of the references, as I didn't know the artist or botanist who are 'characters' in this long poem. The translation seems excellent. What most surprised me, I think, was that it was funny! What a clever, clever...

3.0 out of 5 stars a strange book.
A book that, at times, I was going to put down but because I had read others by him, I continued to read it. It was well written, but not one of the best for me.

This review is from: After Nature (Paperback)
Three prose poems concerning themes which Sebald has inquired into before and before his untimely death in a car crash. These are not easy to read and a second reading yields up greater insights. Great for Sebald fans
