In these poems, revelation waits in all of nature’s smallest details: a lizard’s quick movements, a tree scarred by lighting, the white curve of a snail’s shell. This is a masterful and magical collection from a poet of stirring intelligence.

Poetry
By 
Jan Wagner

One of the most important contemporary poets working in German makes his American debut in this compact, light-footed, and curious dual-language collection. These poems, crafted with the care of a master gardener tending his topiary, seem to gleam and shiver with their own life.

Jan Wagner is a German poet, essayist, and translator. He is the author of The Art of Topiary, translated in collaboration with David Keplinger. The editor of two influential anthologies of German language poetry, Wagner is also the German translator of several British and American poets, including James Tate, Matthew Sweeney, and Charles Simic. In 2017, he was awarded the Georg Büchner Prize. He lives in Berlin.
