|Author: ||Kahn, Lisa|
Poems in German on a variety of subjects.
". . . Kahn demonstrates the scope and the burden of bilingual/bicultural creative writing with astonishing, moving, dream-walking insistence, making German writing in an American context a high adventure. . . . Lisa Kahn's is a special voice, one that will long echo, that will remind of things never arrested. She should be read with care and gratitude, for the places she has prepared for German-American writers and other travellers, as in Atlantische Brücke." - Trans-Lit
"The title, motto, and first few poems of Lisa Kahn's latest collection of poetry could serve as classroom examples of how, in good literature, themes and motifs repeat themselves for artistic effect and how multiple layers of meaning originate and interact. . . . With Atlantische Brücke, Lisa Kahn has produced her most impressive collection to date, and the strongest pieces compare favorably with the best poetry being written in German today." - World Literature Today
"Here is a poetry volume of richness and depth, and one which anyone in the U.S. will enjoy. Those interested in German-language writing should acquire it and also recommend that their local libraries acquire it." -- Nordamerikanische Wochen-Post
"Her poetry expresses anger with the indulgent and complacent. She writes with an urgency and vibrance about life, the beauty of nature and the vastness of the West ... her books are about life, death, time and the mountains." - Kit Miniclier, Denver Post
"Kahn's gift for bridging person and place, present and past, creates in Atlantische Brucke a liberating intimacy - with nature, with places we have been and will go, with our own memories." - Yearbook of German-American Studies
