About the event

Lutz Seiler is one of Germany’s most interesting, contemporary poets. He recently won the Georg Büchner Prize, whose past recipients include Max Frisch, Paul Celan, Ingeborg Bachmann – and basically most of the other key German-language writers you can think of.  Seiler grew up in Communist East Germany but started publishing poetry after the Berlin Wall fell.   His poetry is punchy, compressed and musical, conjuring a community of farmers and uranium miners. This year sees the first English publication of his novel Star 111 and his ‘epoch-making’ poetry collection Pitch & Glint, which is this autumn’s Poetry Book Society’s Translation Choice.

Adam Piette is Professor of Modern Literature at the University of Sheffield.  Stefan Tobler is a translator and publisher at And Other Stories
