Sample text

In translating this volume, I have enjoyed the advice, experience, and expertise of several people I should like to thank here. First and foremost among these is Sven Meyer, the editor of the German volume Über das Land und das Wasser, published by Hanser Verlag in Munich, whose groundbreaking work paved my own path to the Marbach archives. I have discussed aspects of W. G. Sebald’s poetry and writing life with a number of the author’s friends and colleagues, including Philippa Comber; Thomas Honickel; the late Michael Hamburger; Anne Beresford; Albrecht Rasche, the author’s friend during his Freiburg student days; Reinbert Tabbert, the young poet’s colleague at the University of Manchester in 1966 and 1967; and Jo Catling, his later colleague at the University of East Anglia.

Reduced aristocrats swished past in dust-cloaks bound for the refectory. The Rabbi of Belz, plastic beaker in hand, walked to the well. A bride and groom were posing for a photograph on the promenade. Harquebused suffering hearts lay about on the shorn lawns. Returning to the hotel we saw Dr K, half-obscured by a red flag, sitting at his balcony table, busy with a portion of smoked pork much too big for him The match game was meant to decide everything.

It shows me the worm Which sooner than later Will lead me up the garden path. I’ve already bought My pig in a poke It’s all Tom or dick Kids or caboodle In the home and castle. My day is truly Wrecked. Matins for G. There he stood In the early morn And wanted in. It’s warm In front of the fire. Lug a-cock The man waited For some response To his knock. Came a bawl from within: Jesus Mary A pain in the neck In the early morn. Where no kitchen There no cook. We don’t need no King. The man has heard As much before.
