4.0 out of 5 stars 20Th Century German Poems., 13 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Faber Book of Twentieth-Century German Poems (Paperback)
This collection has the works of fifty-four poets, but seems to work between the two points of Bertolt Brecht with 19 poems and Hans Magnus Enzensberger with 14 (including the 8 & a bit page poem, Foam) and although there are other books covering this ground for example, Michael Hamburger's and Christopher Middleton's Modern German Poetry from 1910-1960. As an introduction to a poetry that can hold it's head high on the world stage, this book will take some beating, No, It's not Bilingual, yes it would be probably improved if that was the case, but to most - myself included - that won't matter, what does matter is that this book will serve as a key to a door that can open up a whole world of poetry. Earlier this year I wrote a post on Faber's Book of 20Th Century Italian Poems and this will sit nicely alongside that one on my bookshelves.
