    One of the great classics of European literature, Faust is Goethe?s most complex and profound work.

  • Vby Daniela Danz

    Wallstein Verlag 2014; US$ 16.19

    Daniela Danz` 2009 erschienener Gedichtband »Pontus« war eine Sensation, er wurde mit höchstem Lob bedacht und liegt mittlerweile in der vierten Auflage vor.

    The great Pierre Reverdy, comrade to Picasso and Braque, peer and contemporary of Wallace Stevens and William Carlos Williams, is among the most mysteriously satisfying of twentieth-century poets, his poems an uncanny mixture of the simple and the sublime.

  • Wetterwechselby Martin Städeli

    boox-verlag 2014; US$ 0.00

    Passend zum abwechslungsreichen Frühlingswetter erweist sich die Geschichtensammlung "Wetterwechsel".

Der Alltag erweist sich aber stets nur als Grundlage für Wendungen, die über das Alltägliche hinaus führen. Welten öffnen sich, mit denen... more...

    These selections from the esteemed career of Gottfried Benn?one of the most significant German poets of the 20th century?showcase his early, shockingly graphic depictions of human suffering and degradation, as well as the isolation and fragmentation of the human being adrift in a nihilistic world found in his later work. Translator David Paisey presents... more...
