Kerstin  Hensel - Cinderella Cleans Up


"Kerstin Hensel is a master in her field." Wulf Segebrecht in FAZ

Kerstin Hensel's new poems – composed between 2015 and 2020 – are a real discovery. The prize-winning lyric poet displays a fascinating range of subjects and forms infused with her customary enthusiasm for linguistic games. In Cinderella Cleans Up, Hensel deals in fairy tales and myths, old-fashioned views of women and moral hypocrisy. She sometimes digs deep into subjective experience, at other times forges lyrical greeting cards whose wordplay transforms the trivial 'Wish you were here' into a grotesque and sometimes absurd message. It is a collection that presents the reader with the full force of Hensel's creative power.
