Literary Nonfiction. Philosophy. Translated from the German by Anthea Bell. In three beautifully wrought meditations on the import of René Descartes' legacy from a poet's perspective, Durs Grünbein presents us with a Descartes whom we haven't met before: not the notorious perpetrator of the mind-body-dualism, the arch-villain of Rationalism but the inspired and courageous dreamer, explorer, and fabulist. Reading Descartes against the grain of the widely accepted view of the philosopher as the proponent of a cut-and-dried, disembodied, and, hence, misguided view of humanity, Grunbein discloses the profoundly humane and poetic underpinnings of the legacy of this "modern man par excellence," and, by extension, of modernity as a whole. Uncovering the poetic foundations of Descartes' rationalism and, concomitantly, the poetic lining of the mantle of reason, Durs Grünbein, one of the world's greatest living poets and essayists, shows us that reason is never more alive than when it is most poetic.

This extraordinary book offers a dazzling personal poetics as well as a sustained engagement with the origins of poetry itself.

In reckoning with the possibilities of poetry, it sets out to show us a better way of being in the world: "a guide to thinking and feeling with precision." Written by one of the most exciting and thought-provoking writers of the moment, THE VOCATION OF POETRY is essential reading for anyone interested in modern poetry or in modern life.

Born in Dresden in 1962, Durs Grünbein is the most significant and successful poet to emerge from the former East Germany, a place where, he wrote, 'the best refuge was a closed mouth.' In unsettling, often funny, sometimes savage lines whose vivid images reflect his deep love for and connection with the visual arts, Grünbein is reinventing German poetry and taking on the most pressing moral concerns of his generation. Brilliantly edited and translated by Michael Hofmann, The Selected Poems of Durs Grünbein introduces Germany's most highly acclaimed contemporary poet to a British audience.'Grünbein is a truly cosmopolitan poet . . . creating poetry which, however subtly, participates in and facilitates Germany's sustained attempts to reconfigurating and redefining itself in post-Cold War Europe.' Michael Eskin, Times Literary Supplement

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,7, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin (Institut fur deutsche Literatur), Veranstaltung: Deutsche Literatur von beiden Seiten, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Rezeption anthropologischer, sprachlicher und omnipolitischer Aspekte Grunbein'schen Schaffens und deren Prazisierung. Dies geschieht praktisch - anhand der diachronischen Untersuchung einer Auswahl seiner Werke. Konkret handelt es sich dabei um die drei Gedichtbande Grauzone morgens, Schadelbasislektion und Erklarte Nacht, die jeweils einer unterschiedlichen Dekade entstammen und stellvertretend fur die Entwicklungsstadien oder auch gedanklichen Konstrukte vor-der-Wande," nach-der-Wande" und heute" stehen bzw. stehen konnen. Durch diesen zeitlichen Abriss soll ein gemeinsamer Nenner, eine Art Einheit in der Grunbein'schen Lyrik gefunden werden. Ob diese Einheit in sich homogen oder stark eklektizistisch respektive pluralistisch ist, spielt dabei eine untergeordnete Rolle - entscheidend und zu untersuchen wird sein, was seine Lyrik in sich verbindet und in welchem Masse sie in sich verbunden ist. Dazu werden stichprobenhaft Sprache und Inhalt sowie die Metasprache seiner Gedichte reflektiert, um letztlich nicht nur Grunbeins Lyrik, sondern auch sein Verhaltnis zur Literaturgattung selbst und zu Sprache per se zu eruieren: So gibt sie [Grunbeins Lyrik] Aufschluss [sic] uber ein bestimmtes kunstlerisches Verhaltnis zur Zeit, zum Ich in der eigenen Dichtung, uber die eigene literarische Entwicklung und einer darauf aufbauenden Haltung dem politischen Alltagsgeschehen gegenuber [...]&quo

Durs Grünbein is the most significant poet and essayist in German today. No other modern German poet has written from such an emphatically European and global perspective, and this volume seeks to present the poet and his work to the English-speaking world in all their significance and breadth. Written by a line-up of international scholars and critics, the volume offers highly readable and wide-ranging essays on Grünbein’s substantial œuvre, complemented by specially commissioned material and an interview with the poet. It covers the German and European traditions, and engages with Grünbein’s works in the context of a number of relevant topics, such as ‘memory’, ‘urban life’, ‘mortality’, ‘love’, and ‘presence’; it also probes Grünbein’s sustained dialogue with the natural sciences and the visual arts.

Prompted by recent challenges to and debates about the relative public silence concerning the effects of the Allied air war over Europe during World War II, this collection of essays examines literary, visual (film and photography), and institutional (museums) representations of the bombing of civilian targets, predominantly in Germany. The authors examine narrative strategies of both well-known and relatively little known works as well as the moral and ideological presuppositions of the varied representations of the depredations of total war. The introduction and afterword by the editors invite the readers to expand the contours and historical context of the debates about the German public discourse on the bombing war beyond the narrow confines of perpetrators and victims. The volume will be of interest to literary scholars, historians, and the general reading public interested in warfare and its effects on civilian populations.
