Spiders search for my heart. [[ READ KINDLE ]] ☠ Twenty Poems of Georg Trakl ↙ Chosen from Die Dichtungen , published by Otto M ller Verlag in Salzburg and translated by James Wright and Robert Bly With introductions by the translators Trakl is a supreme example of patience and bravery, and the worlds which these virtues enabled him to explore, and whose inhabitants he so faithfully describes, are places of great fullness and depth His poems are not objects to be used and then cast aside, but entrances into places where deep, silent labors go on De ProfundisIt is a stubble field, where a black rain is falling.It is a brown tree, that stands alone.It is a hissing wind, that encircles empty houses.How melancholy the evening is.A while later,The soft orphan garners the sparse ears of corn.Her eyes graze, round and golden, in the twilightAnd her womb awaits the heavenly bridegroom.On the way homeThe shepherd found the sweet bodyDecayed in a bush of thorns.I am a shadow far from darkening villages.I drank the silence of GodOut of the stream De ProfundisIt is a stubble field, where a black rain is falling.It is a brown tree, that stands alone.It is a hissing wind, that encircles empty

forehead.Spiders search for my heart.It is a light that goes out in my mouth.At night, I found myself on a pasture,Covered with rubbish and the dust of stars.In a hazel thicketAngels of crystal rang

so samey that I suspect I wouldn t find anything terribly new and exciting in any of his other poems I may well re read this another couple of times though I don t love his vision It s pretty horrible These are horrible poems They aren t a warm fuzzy blanket of trees and rivers and princesses in castles etc.I don t love it but it s actually pretty first rate stuff compared to a lot of the poetry I ve read Strongly recommended for anyone looking for an accessible poet It s always perspicacious to read several translations Having said that, this is the best english one I have read so far For a

An intense, great piece of work concerned with despair, anxiety, and depression A heap of what I reckon are personal associations appear throughout the collection silver, stairways, and thorns specifically It does feel like the writing of someone either from a very different time, place or in a state of mental anguish, and from the history of Trakl, that is exactly what was going on Knowing that does change the perspective I had reading these 20 poems Although I recommend reading up on Trakl An intense, great piece of work concerned with despair, anxiety, and depression A heap of what I reckon are personal associations appear throughout the collection silver, stairways, and thorns specifically It does feel like the writing of someone either from a very different time, place or in a state of mental anguish, and from the history of Trakl, that is exactly what was going on Knowing that does change the perspective I had reading these 20 poems Although I recommend reading up on Trakl, his occupation, and a bit about WWI, without any of this insight, these are great poems which speak to the depths of despair that isn t difficult to understand, the nightmares we share, and the isolation we often have to exist within
