“A meeting point for poets of all latitudes”
— Víctor Rodríguez Núñez

Twenty Poems

by Kathrin Schmidt

Translated and introduced by Sue Vickerman

This bilingual chapbook of 20 poems by the
German poet Kathrin Schmidt draws together
work from five of her six collections published
before and after the 1990 reunification of the
two Germanys, and makes for an exciting
introduction to her work. Thanks to Sue
Vickerman’s effervescent translations, we
are able to appreciate Schmidt’s irrepressible
poetic style as she ranges across the themes of
gender, identity, the body, eroticism, her own
personal history and language itself.
