La obra de Wolfgang Borchert es 'la de un hombre que se sabe agonizante', escribe Fernando Aramburu en su epilogo. Unas 300 páginas bastaron a Borchert para alcanzar el rango de clásico de las letras alemanas del siglo XX. Como Buchner, Lautréamont o Radiguet, Borchert, muerto a los 26 años, unió la excelencia artística y una muerte temprana. Un puñado de cuentos, otro de ...more

One of my favourite books, a wonderful collection of Borcherts poems and short-stories. my favourites are "Die Hundeblume", "Nachts schlafen die Ratten doch" and "Das Brot".

Borchert hat ein Talent, aber sein Werk lebt weniger vom Lesen, sondern wirkt im Gesprochenen.
James Loranger
compact and complete; best general edition in the original. Includes the poetry.

für mich stets noch eines der stärksten bücher überhaupt und sowieso.
