Meticulously researched but eminently approachable, "The Faber Book of Twentieth Century German Poems" is an essential new addition to any poetry bookshelf.

"It is probably impossible to produce poetry of this quality that is tuned more precisely to the timbre of the present than Michael Hofmann's. Rapture is the only adequate response". (Geoff Dyer, "Guardian").
