Norbert  Hummelt - Pan's Hour
 
 
 

 

On loss and fear, on the longing for happiness and on transience

Pan's Hour comes during the sultry silence of midday in summer. This is when the god rests, and he spreads fear and terror to anyone disturbing him. This mythical hour is the focus of writer Norbert Hummelt's latest volume of poems. He sounds out in verses the deep tension of this hour, a period characterized by drunkenness and eroticism, terror and happiness, idyll and demonism.

Hummelt's most recent poems circle round the Pan myth in ever new variations. On the one hand they are poems pervaded by the polarity between fear and erotic attraction. On the other hand, we have here poems with a hovering lightness of tone that is distinctive and very powerful. The author has transformed this tension into extremely vivid and phonetically precise poems with a secret lure.
