REALITY STREET : Sarah Kirsch


Sarah Kirsch: T

Sarah Kirsch died in 2013. Born Ingrid Bernstein in what later became East Germany, she changed her name to Sarah in protest against Nazi anti-semitism. Later political protest caused her to leave for the West.

Sarah Kirsch's pamphlet, the poem sequence T, with a parallel English translation by Wendy Mulford and Anthony Vivis, was published by Reality Street in 1995. It's a beautiful little item, physically quite unlike the rest of Reality Street's output, with a dust jacket featuring a painting by Sarah. Sadly, it's long out of print, but a few copies remain of the booklet without the dust jacket. As a tribute to Sarah, Reality Street will send a copy free of charge to anyone who wants one (as long as stocks remain). Please contact the press with your name and full postal address if you want one.
