The Early Poetry of Paul Celan: "In the Beginning Was the Word"
Arguably the greatest post-World War II German poet, Paul Celan (1920-1970) was a Holocaust survivor whose work is an anguished and poignant record of his struggle to meet the conflicting demands of remembrance and living in the present. In this remarkable study, Adrian Del Caro examines the poet's relation to the Word of scripture and to "words" of speech.
