Paul Celan (1920 - 1970)

German literature: Paul Celan Paul Celan

Both of Celan's parents died in German concentration camps and Paul Celan himself barely survived the German occupation of his homeland Romania. Moulded by his experiences, Celan composed some of the most haunting poems to be found in German literature. His major poem 'Death Fugue' ('Die Todesfuge') combines crystal clear poetic language with images of the holocaust.
