Glottal Stop by Paul Celan

Book Description

Paul Celan is widely recognized as the greatest and most studied post-war European poet. At once demanding and highly rewarding, his poetry dominates the field in the aftermath of the Holocaust. This selection of poems, now available in paper, is comprised of previously untranslated work, opening facets of Celan's oeuvre never before available to readers of English. These translations, called "perfect in language, music, and spirit" by Yehuda Amichai, work from the implied premise of what has been called Intention auf die Sprache, delivering the spirit of Celan's work - his dense multilingual resonances, his brutal broken music, syntactic ruptures and dizzying wordplay. Glottal Stop won the 2001 Griffin International Prize for Poetry, judged by Carolyn Forche, Dennis Lee and Paul Muldoon.
