About Neil Astley


Hans Magnus Enzensberger is Germany's most important poet as well as a provocative cultural essayist. 'Like Brecht he combines an intense political engagement with lyric gusto' (George Steiner). Miroslav Holub (1923-98) was the Czech Republic's foremost modern poet and one of her leading immunologists. His fantastical and witty poems give a scientist's bemused view of human folly and other life on the planet. Marin Sorescu (1936-96) was a cheerfully melancholic comic genius, highly popular during the Communist era when Romanians could read other meanings in his mischievous parables and playful mockery of the human condition. Sweden's Tomas Transtromer been called a 'buzzard poet' because his haunting, visionary poetry shows the world from a height, in a mystic dimension, but brings every detail of the natural world into sharp focus.
