Selected Poems, Paperback Book

Description

One of the major twentieth-century European poets, Paul Celan wrote poetry of exceptional linguistic brilliance and intensity drawn from his experiences, particularly of the war years and the loss of his parents in the death camps.

In his verse he sought to express 'not only what the experience felt like, but also a sense of living, with comprehension, inside the experience'.
