Description
Remembered for such books as The Rings of Saturn, The Emigrants, Vertigo, and in particular Austerlitz, German-born W.G. Sebald was also a poet of soaring and searing verse. This book collects nearly 100 poems, translated by John Dryden Prize winner Iain Galbraith—among them, all of the poems that Sebald placed in books and journals during his lifetime, 88 that appear in English for the first time here, and 33 that were found in unpublished manuscripts.

"How fortunate we are to have this writer's startling imagination freshly on display once again, and now in poetry. [This] is a rich collection full of little mysteries, unnerving insights, and odd reflections, all expressed in language honed to a perfect simplicity. 'The Three Wise Men / Are walking the earth,' his lines go, and at least one of them is W.G. Sebald."—Billy Collins
