The poet's most recent collection of work is a sequence on history and Western myths. Exploring new aesthetic forms based in part on contemporary art, it uses boldly elliptical language to explore Wagnerian tones of fatal longing, generals and swans, failed thinkers, introspective mass murderers, Stalingrad and Auschwitz. The connectivity of language moves the reader from Germany to the US, jihad and 9/11, as they lose the ground beneath their feet. Graf has written his own glossary for this edition, produced in close collaboration with the translator.
