His writing exposes and illumines the wounds that Nazi destructiveness left on language. John Felstiners sensitive and accessible book is the first critical biography of Celan in any language. It offers new translations of well-known and little-known poems, with a chapter on Celans famous Deathfugue, plus his speeches, prose fiction, and letters. The book also presents hitherto unpublished photos of the poet and his circle.
