Poems of Paul Celan
Laura Hartmark's review
Feb 22, 2012
This is a hard read. But then, this was a hard time in Europe. I learned to do close reading by reading these poems. If you think a simple poem has a simple message, you may see these poems go by without really hearing them. But if you dig deeper, using etymology and history as your guides, you will find a world of hurt and hope. And you will be transfigured by the experience.
