Breathturn by Paul Celan
Book DescriptionA bilingual edition of celebrated German poet Paul Celan's most important collection. Midway through his writing career, Celan's work underwent a poetic change, the turn' of the title. Celan pared down his poems - the syntax growing more spiny and his trademark telescoping of words increasing, while the overall composition of his work became more serial in nature. Noted translator Pierre Joris conveys the cyclical aspect of Celan's writing in this translation of the 1967 work, while demonstrating the power of the linguistic experiments that define it.'

A response to the turbulent events of 1968 - the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, the attempted assassination of a student leader in Berlin - this collection features images of earlier violence and resistance in a dark European century: the hanging of anti-Hitler conspirators in 1944, the shooting of Rosa Luxembourg in 1919.
