The Presence of God in the World

A Contribution to Postmodern Christology based on the Theologies of PaulTillich and Karl Rahner


Steven Ogden

Detailed analyses of Karl Krolow's autobiographical poetry, 1945-1958. Among others: «Selbstbildnis 1945», «Niemand wird helfen» (1950), «Robinson I-III» (1958). To ascertain the foreign influence, poems of the fifties are compared to French poems of similar theme, Krolow had translated. Example: Reverdy's «Monsieur X».
Marked differences in content and analytical methods: Sole focus on Krolow's autobiographical poetry, 1945-1958. Detailed interpretations of the same. Comparison with relevant French poems. By contrast: A. Rümmler, Die Entwicklung der Metaphorik in der Lyrik Karl Krolows (1942-1962) (Lang, 1972) and unpublished dissertation of T. Drevikovsky.
