Doris  Runge - angels in passing


The best poems of the last thirty years by the grande dame of German poetry

Doris Runge is one of the most important poets of modern German literature. Looking closely, watching apparently incidental occurrences is part of her strategy, as is the reduction to the bare essentials. But anyone seeing the little day-to-day vignettes as nothing out of the ordinary should look again: the paths branch out from very word, double meanings and mythical beings open up worlds leading to a past life and an afterlife, to fairytales, to heavenly and, who knows, hellish spheres.

This volume contains her best and most important works from the last three decades and some new and hitherto unpublished poems.

"Here are poems that have a lasting effect. This book is a life’s work that one will pick up to read again and again."
