Shelves: poetry, deutsch
Kästner’s cycle of poems Die 13 Monate (The 13 Months) should be read in one sitting, or, as I did, with a recording of actor Heinz Rühmann reading the poems. Kästner wrote a poem for every month plus a 13th that embraces parts of each. The beauty of the language plus Rühmann’s aged, welcoming voice—he was in his late 80s when he made these recordings—would surprise anyone who thinks of German as a guttural, staccato language with strange sounds.

A selected verse from “Der März” (“March”) hopeful
Melanie Goetz
13 nette Gedichte über die Jahreszeiten eines "Großstädters für Großstädter" im Auftrag einer Zeitschrift. Mit tollen Grafiken von Celestino Piatti und gelegentlichen, kleinen Weisheiten.

Melancholie und Freude sind wohl Schwestern.
Und aus den Zweigen fällt verblühter Schnee.
Mit jedem Pulsschlag wird aus Heute Gestern.
Auch Glück kann weh tun. Auch der Mai tut weh.

Eher schwacher Kästner: Hier fehlt,was ihn sonst auszeichnet: das Bissige, insbeosndere in gesellschaftlich-poslitischer Sicht.

Erich Kästner (1899 – 1974) was a German author, poet, screenwriter and satirist, known for his humorous, socially astute poetry and children's literature.

A stout pacifist and democrat, he was expelled from the national writers' guild during the Nazi era, with many of his books being burned in public. Today, he is widely regarded as one of Germany's most prolific and beloved children's book author
