Ulrike  Draesner - touched places


A new volume of poetry by one of the most important lyricists writing in German.

Travel: lust – adventure – madness. How long does it take you to learn to get into the pool on your heels like a camel? How long to realise that “Cbrt rntl” is meant to mean Cabaret Oriental? What paths do you use to approach villages in which most men are called “Sword”, in which it smells of sweat, excrements, fire, human beings and animal fear?

Ulrike Draesner’s latest poems are a journey to the border zones of one’s own body and an outside world that has suddenly become unfamiliar.
