Self-portrait with a Swarm of Bees

Jan Wagner

Self-portrait with a Swarm of Bees

Self-Portrait with a Swarm of Bees, to be published in Arc's flagship translation series 'Visible Poets', combines the poet's unerring instinct for the surprising perspective on commonplace objects or events - plants, animals, landscapes - with a mischievous delight in the detail of the absurd, the precarious balance.

Ludwig Steinherr

Before the Invention of Paradise

Ludwig Steinherr is one of the most compelling new voices to have emerged in Germany since the late 1980s and this selection - the first to appear in English - from his 10 poetry collections published between 1985 and 2005 reflects the breadth and depth of his writing, ranging from its post-Celanian darkness to its insistence on light.

To the Silenced: Selected Poems

Georg Trakl

To the Silenced: Selected Poems

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.

Mother Tongue: Selected Poems

Rose Ausländer

Mother Tongue: Selected Poems

"There were two ways to respond to that unbearable reality," wrote Rose Ausländer thirty years later, remembering the Chernovtsy ghetto under the Nazis. "Either one could despair entirely, or one could occupy a different, spiritual reality. And while we waited for death, there were those of us who dwelt in dreamwords - our traumatic home amidst our homelessness. To write was to live."
