    Across the Land and the Water: Selected Poems 1964-2001

    Across the Land and the Water: Selected Poems 1964-2001Free Shipping


    When W.G. Sebald died in 2001, he was internationally acknowledged as one of the most important German writers of our era. Now, thanks to Iain Galbraith's vibrant translations, the full breadth of his poetry is available in English for the first time. This volume brings together poems published during Sebald's lifetime with an additional selection of those which were found in his literary archives in Marbach and never published while he was alive. Arranged chronologically, from work published during his student days in the 1960s to the longer narratives he produced during the 1980s, the poems touch on the themes which were closest to Sebald - nature and history; forgetting and remembering; borders, journeys and landscapes - and express in short, lyrical form the same distinctive insight and sensitivity that shaped his great works of prose fiction.
