Four cycles of poems by a great artist, long out of print and now collected in one volume. Chansons and love songs that go to the heart and remain in the mind.
Long out of print and now available again or for the first time in book format – the great poetic cycles by Wolf Wondratschek. "Like all popular poets, he loves the simple, uncontorted and unforced sentences, the ones that seem to speak for themselves – they are the most difficult", wrote Georg Hensel, and Die Zeit enthused about Carmen: "A single, long, often breathtakingly beautiful and moving love poem." Wondratschek's poems – much-read, much-admired, often copied – have received the applause of a great readership.
