Modern and contemporary Swiss poetry: an anthology


Modern and contemporary Swiss poetry: an anthology. Edited by: Keller, L (2012). Champaign: Dalkey Archive Press.

Abstract

Featuring the work of some of the greatest poets of the twentieth century as well as their contemporary counterparts, this anthology is unique in bringing together a broad selection of Switzerland's greatest authors in all of the country's major languages. Featuring Urs Allemann, Arno Camenisch, Blaise Cendrars, Jacques Chessex, Adelheid Duvanel, Claire Genoux, Philippe Jaccottet, Gerhard Meier, Klaus Merz, Giorgio Orelli, Giovanni Orelli, and Anne Perrier, among many others—most of whose work has never before been available in English translation—this overview of Swiss poetry stands as the ideal introduction to an undervalued and idiosyncratic force in international literature, at the forefront of many of the most influential literary movements, be they traditional or experimental.
