This collection is a deep pleasure.
There are free versions available on the internet of these poems, but for me they do not come close to this lucid, shimmering and resonant translation. I do not speak German, so can not comment on the 'authenticity' of this rendering, however I would simply say that this translation speaks to me with a sense of uncanny beauty, whereas others I have read 'feel' translated.
