Norbert  Hummelt - Purgatory


"What is so exhilarating about Norbert Hummelt's poems is their hovering, light tone." Saarbrücker Zeitung

In his latest poems, Norbert Hummelt evokes people's inner woes and the happiness of release – an elegiac reference to Dante's second intermediate state, Purgatory. Bar all pathos and nonetheless poignant, Hummelt plunges into childhood memories, suffers further anxieties that have a lasting mark. At the same time, these poems are masterpieces of invigorating, liberating power: in their impelling rhythm they conjure up the joy of inner metamorphosis and moments of happiness. No other German-speaking poet writes emotionally more credibly and with greater literary deliberation.
