Ulrike  Draesner - subsong


"In her poetically vibrant language she not only teaches us to face the world fearlessly – she makes us want to do so." Jury of the Joachim Ringelnatz Prize

"Subsong" or "whisper song" is subdued birdsong: a collection of familiar calls and new series of sounds, arising from the moment, from joy. Poems as subsongs. Vocabulary is sung far, and love always stretches both, language and heart. Subsongs are particularly lovely, for they have no function. Family chatter, babble, tried. Without realising it you are observing poetry.

Ulrike Draesner "poetises the world": by taking its tones off it, transposing them into language. Exactly. Melodiously. Smilingly open.
