Although the Austrian poet Georg Trakl was born over a century ago, the mesmerizing imagery and haunting visions of his highly sensitive and morbidly introspective poetry are as powerful today as they were when he poured forth his extraordinary and unclassifiable volume of work.
A source of inspiration for artists, musicians and writers through the Expressionist period and beyond, Trakl's poetry bleak, yet full of tenderness and hope, nightmarish yet eerily beautiful has steadfastly defied any coherent critical analysis.
Will Stone's outstanding new translation, in a parallel-text edition complete with contextualizing essays, promises to rekindle interest in the work of this seminal poet.
