Rainer Schulte’s poems create vivid, unexpected images that cast a fresh and original light on the events and scenes of everyday life. His eye observes the phenomena of human existence with crystal clarity and reinterprets them in startlingly unusual ways. Through paradoxical juxtapositions his mind glimpses the dynamic realms of our inner world. Concise in language, yet not obscure, his poems lead the reader from sensuous experience to abstraction. His vision of the world becomes transparent through chains of metaphorical associations that reflect the violence and hypocrisy of the contemporary world we inhabit. And at the same time, his metaphors and images project moments of silence that flicker with a light of hope.
