Sarah  Kirsch - March Violets
 
 
 

 

"Why I write, why I live collapses." Sarah Kirsch

Babbling silvery wind, hail snakes, green octopuses in the garden in January – Sarah Kirsch is without any doubt one of the big names in German poetry. Her diary entries are always an immersion in the world of poetry and testify to a close affinity with nature. She links life in the changing seasons with her own associations, which are frequently coloured with wit and irony. An idyllic cosmos, which, however, is broken into by the world outside: the impact of 9/11, for example, or the floods in eastern Germany find mention in her notes between December 2001 and autumn 2002. This makes Sarah Kirsch's diaries into a magnificent document of current events with her own personal commentaries, and they bear witness to the still flourishing top-quality work of this "classic in her own lifetime" (Westdeutsche Rundfunk).
