· ‘Which Airport Next? Ruth J. Owen follows the trail of contemporary German poets’, new books in german, ed. Astrid Kurth (2003)
This feature article was commissioned to survey contemporary German poetry and introduce some of the key figures and most successful collections to a non-specialist readership. It presents German poets as international flâneurs, whose work thematizes global travel, science and media, alongside Germany’s recent historical caesuras. The article is available online.
