Lady God

Paul Wühr

The individual's relationship to the Creator has always been central to Paul Wühr's work, and the poet's latest book, published in time for his 80th birthday in 2007, extends his radical and inventive thoughts on this theme. Here we find questions, welcome and necessary questions, about not a Lord but a Lady God – neither a woman, nor an image, but an unimaginable female spirit whose essence has been embodied by female characters of diverse eras and mythologies. Paul Wühr's poetry brings their roles, from the profane to the devout, into play, and offers a model of a divine counterpart beyond all the creeds. If we must die because we live, let there be no suppression, he argues, mounting a great lyrical protest against hierarchies in any shape or form.
