Breathturn into timestead : the collected later poetry : a bilingual edition by Paul Celan( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Haunting poems from one of the twentieth century's groundbreaking poets Paul Celan, one of the greatest German-language poets of the twentieth century, created brilliant works of pure musicality and stark imagery in tension with the haunting memories of his life as a Romanian Jew during the Holocaust. Breathturn into Timestead: The Collected Later Poetry gathers the five final volumes of his life's work in a bilingual edition, translated and with commentary by the award-winning poet and translator Pierre Joris. This collection displays a mature writer at the height of his talents, following what Celan himself called the "turn" (die "Wende") of his work away from the lush, surreal metaphors of his earlier verse. Given "the sinister events in its memory," Celan wrote, the language of poetry has to become "more sober, more factual. 'grayer.'" He abandoned the richer music of lyric poems, paring his compositions down to increase the accuracy of the language that now "does not transfigure or render 'poetical'; it names, it posits, it tries to measure the area of the given and the possible." In his need for an inhabitable post-Holocaust world that held the memory and anguish of that history, Celan experimented with a bold new poetics. Breathturn into Timestead reveals a poet undergoing one of the most profound artistic reinventions of the twentieth century--creating a poetry grounded in his painful personal history and the ravages of postwar Europe"--

Der Briefwechsel zwischen 1948 und 1961 (ein letzter Brief Celans datiert aus dem Juni 1967) ist ein bewegendes Zeugnis: zunächst als das Gespräch einer Liebe nach Auschwitz mit allen symptomatischen Störungen und Krisen aufgrund der so konträren Herkunft der beiden und ihrer schwer zu vereinbarenden Lebensentwürfe als Frau und als Mann und als Schreibende. Aber es ist auch ein Ringen um Freundschaft oder um wenigstens irgendeine Beziehung. Ergänzend zu den beinahe zweihundert Zeugnissen ihrer Korrespondenz wurden die Briefwechsel zwischen Ingeborg Bachmann und Gisele Celan-Lestrange sowie zwischen Paul Celan und Max Frisch in den Band aufgenommen

Paul Celan was born in 1920 in the East European province of Bukovina. Soon after his parents, German-speaking Jews, had perished at the hands of the Nazis, Celan wrote "Todesfuge" ("Death-fugue"), the most compelling poem to emerge from the Holocaust. Self-exited in Paris, for twenty-five years Celan continued writing in his German mother tongue, although it had "passed through the thousand darknesses of deathbringing speech". His writing purges and remakes that language, often achieving a hope-struck radiance never before seen in modern poetry. But in 1970, his psychic wounds unhealed, Celan drowned himself in the Seine. This landmark volume includes youthful lyrics, unpublished poems, and prose. All poems appear in the original and in translation on facing pages. John Felstiner's translations stem from a twenty-year immersion in Celan's life and work. John Bayley wrote in the New York Review of Books. "Felstiner translates. . . brilliantly."
Poems of Paul Celan by Paul Celan( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a new, revised edition of an Anvil Classic. Paul Celan was one of the great poets of the twentieth century. Born into a Jewish family in a German enclave of Romania, his life and work were indelibly marked by the Holocaust: his parents perished in a camp, he was lucky to survive. The Jewish experience and the force of history stretched language, and Celan himself, beyond breaking point. Celan committed suicide in Paris in 1970, but not before he had remade and reclaimed German as a language fit for poets. Celan spoke of a language 'north of the future' and described his poems as messages in bottles that might never be received
