Poems and prose
Georg Trakl (1887-1914) was an Austrian poet, born in Salzburg. His work has, up until now, only been available in anthologies and short selections. This volume contains all his major poetic work, including the prose poetry and some prose pieces. Trakl's models were Baudelaire, Rimbaud and Verlaine. His poems are often likened to pictures by the French fauvistes or the German expressionists, for their use of colour and communication of mood. His admirers include Rilke, Kafka, Karl Kraus, and the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein who was one of his patrons.
