Samples of Stone and Light

Samples of Stone and Light

Anja Kampmann

I never saw so much snow
never so many tracts of land frozen so thick
cold and icestill like the land that turns away from us

So begins Anja Kampmann’s exploration of landscape through poetry, an exploration oscillating between intimacy and alienation, between the wordlessness of nature and the expressive power of poetry. Many of the poems begin with similar perspectives on reality, on images, and places.

»I want to describe the horizon« — the horizon that frames our world whilst bounding it. Anja Kampmann is a new young voice on the poetic landscape well worth discovering. In 2015, she was awarded the Wolfgang Weyrauch grant for the poetic reconnaissance of "uncharted territory, which despite descriptive precision precision defies monosemy."
