Book Launch: Poetry & Exile
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.”
Copies of the book (and also poems by Wolfskehl) will be available for sale at a discounted price ($40 cash only).
RSVP by 9th October to email@example.com | 043856924.
