Ernst Meister

Of Entirety Say the Sentence - limited edition hardcover

Of Entirety Say the Sentence - limited edition hardcover

Named one of the best poetry books of 2015 by Entropy Magazine

One of the last books by post-war German poet and Georg Büchner Prize winner Ernst Meister—and the third to be translated into English by poet Graham Foust and scholar Samuel Frederick—Of Entirety Say the Sentence is his most expansive book. With rich allusions to Hölderlin and Celan, these poems are staggering in their scope of mortality, time, and infinity. Bilingual (German/English) edition.

The other two books in the trilogy are In Time's Rift (2012) and Wallless Space (2014), which was shortlisted for the National Translation Award in Poetry.

Check out pictures and notes from Graham Foust's visit to the Ernst Meister archives: Part 1 and Part 2.
