You are warmly invited to the Goethe-Institut for the launch of Karl Wolfskehl “Poetry and Exile - Letters from New Zealand 1938-1948“ edited and  translated by Nelson Wattie.

Steven Sedley will chair a discussion and readings by Dr Friedrich Voit and Nelson Wattie.

Wolfskehl was described by Thomas Mann as:
“a personality of European rank, holding an important and incomparable place in the history of the German spirit. As a poet and thinker, as an intimate friend and lifelong companion of the great German poet, Stefan George; as a  promoter stimulating varied progressive movements of the twentieth century
he was of great influence in significant spheres of arts and letters.”
