The Michael Hamburger Reader is the definitive collection of poems, translations, essays, interviews and personal reflections by one of the most influential Anglo-German writers of the last century. Dennis O'Driscoll - a friend and fellow poet - has distilled Hamburger's giant oeuvre into an essential volume that defines his legacy. The translations from German, Italian and French start with Goethe and Hölderlin and end with W. G. Sebald, via Celan, Bachmann, Brecht, and Nelly Sachs, among others. Hamburger's own poems, with their subtle musical and philosophical inquiry, are generously sampled, as are his critical essays on major European writers, from Georg Trakl and Gottfried Benn to Samuel Beckett and T. S. Eliot.

Review:

'Few English poets of our day can have come to their craft with the cultural and linguistic richness of Michael Hamburger.' --Stephen Romer

'The three main strands of his work, as poet, translator and critic, have always been twisted together into a single cord which though it can be separated out is most remarkable and distinguished as a whole.' --Modern Poetry in Translation
