Michael Hamburger (1924–2007) was a poet and critic of distinction as well as the outstanding translator of German poetry. His translations included selections from Celan, Eich, Goethe, Hofmannsthal, Hölderlin, Peter Huchel, Rilke and others, and it was through his In The Truth of Poetry he taught his and later generations how to read beyond these shores. In this much-needed collection, Dennis O’Driscoll has refined a giant oeuvre of poems, translations and essays into an essential volume that restores Hamburger's legacy as one of the most innovative and influential writers of the twentieth century.
