    I wish it would be translated to other languages

      It’d probably be fairly hard to translate it while retaining the same power and meaning as the original version. However, i’ve read many translations of his previous poetry book, and have found some of the translations to be just as beautiful. It just depends on the complexity of the poem I guess.

      Where have you found these translations, and can you recommend one in particular?

      I’ve just bought Messer and could use s little help as my German is far from fluent

      You’ve got here a link to one. But I can’t say if it’s good or not.

      Thank you, it’s a help. I wish I’d paid more attention during German lessons in school 🙂

    • MayaE

      I agree, very hard.

    I think I’ll pre-order now and practise my German between now and October.
