Kerstin  Hensel - Catapult Character


"… one of Germany's most exceptional writers." dpa

The highly esteemed poet Kerstin Hensel is playing a risky game in her latest poems. It is called Catapult Character. Anyone taking part in it is thrown off the tracks of normal life und subjected to overwhelming emotions, be they those following the loss of one's social position or a person, in the wake of a natural catastrophe, or love.

Kerstin Hensel's poems use a wide diversity of forms in an attempt to understand these extreme events in life and thus to counteract the power of her own feelings.
