Introducing a new chapbook, Elis Dances, by Hans Raimund.
A major Austrian writer, Hans Raimund is considered one of the most important voices of his generation in all of German-language poetry today. Born in 1945 in Lower Austria, Raimund and his wife live in a country house — the stimulus of much of his poetry — in the Austrian province of Burgenland. A gifted translator as well as a writer, Raimund received the Austrian W.H. Auden Translation Prize for his translations of Italian, French, and English authors. In addition to the wide publications of his essays in literary publications and newspapers, Raimund is the author of eight books of poetry and four prose collections. In recognition of his oeuvre, Raimund was awarded Austria's prestigious Georg Trakl Prize in 1994 and the Anton Wildgans Prize in 2004, and he has also received literary prizes in Italy . His books are translated into Slovenian, Bulgarian, Albanian, Italian, and English, including: Hardly the blink of an eye, Words and Spaces, Phoenix, Arizona, 1993; Verses of a marriage, Event Horizon Press, Desert Hot Springs, California, 1996; and Viennese Ventriloquies, Event Horizon Press, Desert Hot Springs, California, 1998. His poetry has been described as "outstanding in its musical quality and its extremely successful blending of classical forms with modern elements."
