Trakl/Surrender to Night
27th February 2020 - European Bookshop - 7pm - 8.30pm
We invite you to an evening with Will Stone and Jeremy Adler who will read from
and discuss " Surrender to Night " with us over a glass of wine!
In Georg Trakl’s brief, tragic life he produced a body of work of intense visual power. Dense, imagistic and full of unnerving symbolism, his poems occupy a critical space in German Expressionism.
Until his death on the Eastern Front in 1914, Trakl honed a singular poetic voice to express the horror he saw in the world around him, culminating in the starkly powerful war poems for which he is best known.
This edition includes all of Trakl’s major poems alongside a judicious selection of the best of his uncollected work, all rendered in a vividly clear and sensitively attuned English by translator and poet Will Stone. With a biography, a critical introduction and a chronology of Trakl’s life, this collection promises to reinvigorate interest in this under-appreciated poet.
Will Stone (b. 1966) is a writer, poet and translator of French, Belgian and German literature, living in Suffolk. He holds a degree in Literary Translation from the University of East Anglia, Norwich, and has produced prose and poetry translations of the works of Stefan Zweig, Emile Verhaeren, Goerges Rodenbach, Maurice Maeterlinck, Rainer Maria Rilke and Joseph Roth, among others.
