    From the Popol Vuh to postmodernism, imagery of the natural world has played an important role in Latin American literature.

  • Es tanzt der Steinby Brigitte Fuchs

    edition 8 2014; US$ 15.99

    Er nimmt uns gleich zwischen zwei Polen gefangen. Da kommt das Leichte, Rhythmische, Schwebende zum Zuge und kontrastiert mit der Schwere und Härte des Steins, an der es sich nicht etwa bricht, sondern die es aufhebt. Eine Absurdität? Nicht, wenn man vom Bild des 'Schieferns' ausgeht, wo Steine über die Wasserfläche hüpfen. Und auch nicht, wenn man... more...
