This volume of work presents a collection of poems from Europe's leading postwar poet, Paul Celan and including previously unpublished writings.

Born in Bukovina (now part of Romania) Celan saw his father and mother die because of the Nazi take over of their country and their imprisonment in camps. He spent most of his life in Paris writing in German before committing suicide.

John Felstiner teaches at Stanford University.
