Although the Expressionists are renowned for their dynamic and emotionally challenging imagery, their literary masterpieces remain a well-kept secret. Here, for the first time, is an anthology of some of the very best poems from the Expressionist era, by radical artists and writers such as Wassily Kandinsky, Egon Schiele, Georg Trakl, and Else Lasker-Schuler.
