Description


"Hamburger's starkly graceful selected translations [of Celan]...remain the best available."—Publishers Weekly


Paul Celan is the preeminent poet of the Holocaust. His chilling, haunted verse, evocative and agonizingly spare, is among the essential writing of the modern age. Paul Celan: 70 Poems is a portable selection of some of his most essential work, translated by Michael Hamburger (1924–2007), who for more than thirty years has provided the English-speaking world with the truest access to Celan’s oeuvre.

About the Author


Paul Celan was a poet and translator born in the East European province of Bukovina. Soon after his parents, German-speaking Jews, had perished at the hands of the Nazis, Celan wrote the poem "Todesfuge" ("Deathfugue"), which depicted life in a German concentration camp.

Michael Hamburger (1924-2007) wrote many collections of poetry and criticism. Other notable translations include Baudelaire's Twenty Prose Poems. He received the European Translation Prize for Poems of Paul Celan.
