Inhaltsangabe: Poetry. Bilingual Edtion. Translated from the German by Amy Kepple Strawser. In this first-ever bilingual edition of VOICES FROM THE BITTER CORE (Stimmen aus dem harten Kern) acclaimed German poet Ursula Krechel traces the devastating repercussions of violence and warfare, from the battles of Ancient Greece to the trenches of World War I and the invasions of our current century. Krechel employs a collage technique that blends ancient and modern in an inventive and astute way, mixing quotes taken from military instruction manuals and codes of conduct with the imagined perspectives of historical figures such as Byron and Philoctetes and the anonymous voices of soldiers and civilians. The arbitrariness of violence is juxtaposed with the strikingly rigorous form, with each of the twelve chapters consisting of twelve twelve-line poems. Behind this multiplicity of speakers and techniques, the reader hears a lyrical and monumental voice that distils the essence of war. VOICES FROM THE BITTER CORE is a profound and lasting memorial to the wages of human brutality.
About the Author: Ursula Krechel was born in 1947 in Trier, Germany. She studied German, theater, and art history, and has taught at various universities. She has published prose, prose, radio plays and essays. She lives in Berlin.
