After Every War

Titelbild After every warIn der Princeton University Press erschien soeben der Band "After Every War. Twentieth-Century Women Poets", eine Anthologie ins Englische übersetzter Texte von neun deutschsprachigen Autorinnen: "They are nine women with much in common - all German speaking, all poets, all personal witnesses to the horror and devastation that was World War II. Yet, in this deeply moving collection, each provides a singularly personal glimpse into the effects of war on language, place, poetry, and womanhood. After Every War is a book of translations of women poets living in Europe in the decades before and after World War II: Rose Ausländer, Elisabeth Langgässer, Nelly Sachs, Gertrud Kolmar, Else Lasker-Schüler, Ingeborg Bachmann, Marie Luise Kaschnitz, Dagmar Nick, and Hilde Domin".
