"AT NIGHT, BENEATH TREES"

Ten years younger than fellow German poet Jandl (above), Kr†ger is light-years apart in style and substance: discursive, representational, and lyrical, his world-conscious poetry mourns the end of history Ca stubbed toe in the march of time"") and the dissolution of culture; he's a ""typical nervous observer"" of the ""inscrutable world"" in verse that gives voice to a wide range of unlikely philosophers (a parrot, a mailman, a service station attendant). English text only.
