Pathways to Paul Celan

A History of Critical Responses as a Chorus of Discordant Voices


Bianca Rosenthal

The reviews discussed in this volume about Paul Celan, arguably the most important German-language poet of the last fifty years, reflect the wide spectrum of opinion he encountered at the hands of the critics. The contributions were selected in so far as they make apparent the nature of Celan's development as a poet as well as the history and maturation of his reception and influence.
