9780856463211: Intersections: Shorter Poems 1994-2000

Michael Hamburger's new collection gathers his shorter poems written since his "Collected Poems" of 1994. His strong and sinuous poems are alert to the intersections of past and present, of continuity and change. His searching form of nature poetry is informed, as Iain Galbraith put it in "PN Review", by 'a language whose philosophical and metaphysical scope is unique in contemporary British poetry'.

About the Author:

Michael Hamburger was born in Berlin in 1924, and came to Britain as a child. He has taught widely in America and Britain and is the outstanding contemporary translator and critic of German literature. His awards include the German Federal Republic's Goethe Medal in 1986 for services to German literature. Anvil publishes several of his translations, including editions of Goethe, Holderlin, Rilke and 'Poems of Paul Celan', which received the EC's European Translation Prize in 1990. His 'Collected Poems 1941-1994' was published in 1995 by Anvil, who also publish his seminal critical work 'The Truth of Poetry'.

Review:

'Hamburger has been more than usually attentive to the divisions, to the "shocks and conflicts" of his century; his work helps us share in them, and enriches our understanding' - Stephen Romer, Agenda'Hamburger is inimitable... at his best when his bird-spotting, naturalist's bent is flowing with his philosophical enquiry' - Adam Thorpe, Poetry Review
