Biennial Ingeborg Bachmann Centre Lecture: Bachmann & Celan

  • Tue 3 Mar 2020
  • 6:00PM

Correspondents, lovers, muses for each other’s work, Ingeborg Bachmann and Paul Celan were the two premier poets of the post-war era in German language poetry. Though Celan’s poetry has become ascendant in recent decades, Bachmann’s fiction is now better known and appreciated than in her lifetime. The centennial year of Celan’s birth marks a fitting time to reconsider their creative relationship, as well as to assess their divergent legacies. The lecture will be held by American poet, scholar and translator Peter Filkins.

Participation is free, but advance online booking is essential.
