Raoul Schrott: "Inventur des Sommers" | Zur Veranstaltungs-Website
How do you write about the fullness of the moment, life and the rapture of summer?
Lockdowns and wars have left gaping holes in the present. Raoul Schrott’s genre-bending poems explore how our thoughts, actions and feelings are highly influenced by what is absent. Can poetry bring back what is lost? What remains and what do we leave behind when we go? In this artful collection of texts that move back and forth between essay and poetry, Schrott brings into focus a colourful kaleidoscope of fragmented, life-defining moments – ranging from the personal to current events to a trip to the site of the muses, from true stories, to eulogies to celebrations.
“World class. If Raoul Schrott weren’t already famous, this book would ensure it.”
