Hoffnung klar umrissen
"Robert Creeley's poetry is as basic and necessary as the air we breathe, as hospitable, plain and open as our continent itself. He is about the best we have." John Ashbery
Hoffnung klar umrissen contains 30 short poems selected from five decades of work by Robert Creeley (1926-2005), translated and with an afterword by K.A. Perryman.
This is the first volume in a new series of bilingual collections devoted to contemporary poetry, called Die weiße Reihe (the white series).
