An outstanding new anthology from one of the foremost authorities of modern German poetry.

Rilke, Sachs, Brecht, Celan: German has produced some of the giants of 20th Century European poetry. In this new selection, complete with many new translations, Michael Hofmann guides us through the poems, poets and themes of German verse. Meticulously researched but eminently approachable, The Faber Book of Twentieth Century German Poems is an essential new addition to any poetry bookshelf.

Michael Hofmann is one of the leading poets of his generation. Born in Freiburg, Germany, his translations have won the Independent's Foreign Fiction Award, the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and the Schlegel-Tieck Translation prize (twice).
