Paul Celan

Paul Celan was born in Czernowitz, Bukovina, in 1920, and is considered by many to be the greatest German-language poet of the second half of the twentieth century. He survived the Holocaust and settled in Paris in 1948, where he lived and wrote until his suicide in 1970. His poetry collections include Poppy and Memory, Speechgrille, Breathturn and Timestead. His prose is gathered in Microliths they are, Little Stones. He remains probably best known for his poem "Todesfuge" ("Death Fugue").
