Georg Heym was one of the towering figures of the great age of modern German poetry despite having drowned at the age of 24.

A poet of the big city, he takes the tradition to its limits; his dark imagery and horrific visions, conveyed in tight metric forms of inexorable force, foreshadowing the experience of both world wars.

Hasler's is the fullest selection to appear in English.
