Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
This volume begins with the first complete English translation of "Shibboleth for Paul Celan." It then explores the relationship of poetry and philosophy in Celan's work, discusses the interrelation of poetry and poetics, and examines the peculiarly "written" character of Celan's poetry. The final section treats the implication of Celan's practice of translation.
