By Scott Denham, Mark McCulloh
The novelist, poet, and essayist W. G. Sebald (1944 - 2001) was once maybe the main unique German author of the decade of the twentieth century ("Die Ausgewanderten", "Austerlitz", "Luftkrieg und Literatur"). His writing is marked by way of a different ´;hybridity´ that mixes features of travelogue, cultural feedback, crime tale, historic essay, and dream diary, between different genres. He employs layers of literary and movie allusions that give a contribution to a occasionally enigmatic, occasionally in detail prevalent temper; his dominant mode is depression. The contributions of this anthology research W. G. Sebald as narrator and pensive observer of historical past. The booklet contains a formerly unpublished interview with Sebald from 1998.
