About Ernst Meister

Ernst Meister (1911-1979) was born in Hagen, Germany, and studied first theology, then literature, art history, and philosophy (the latter under Karl Lowith and Hans-Georg Gadamer) at various German universities. After the publication of his first book in 1932, he published no poetry for two decades, a silent spell that ultimately gave way to the prolific last third of his life, over the course of which he produced more than sixteen volumes of verse as well as numerous other literary and visual works. Often compared to Paul Celan because of the brevity and difficulty of his poems, Meister tends toward a more abstract existentialism that renders his work both intensely emotional and inimitably strange. Having written outside the dominant literary circles of his time, he remains relatively unknown, though he was posthumously awarded the most prestigious award for German literature, the Georg Buchner Prize, having been informed of the honor just days before his death. Graham Foust and Samuel Frederick have translated Meister's informal trilogy which includes "In Time's Rift" (Wave Books, 2012), "Wallless Space" (Wave Books, 2014) and "Of Entirety Say the Sentence" (Wave Books, 2015). Graham Foust is the author of several collections of poetry, including "A Mouth in California" (Flood Editions, 2009) and "To Anacreon in Heaven and Other Poems" (Flood Editions, April 2013). He teaches at the University of Denver. With Samuel Frederick, he has translated three volumes of poetry by Ernst Meister, including "In Time s Rift" (Wave Books, 2012), "Wallless Space" (Wave Books, 2014), and "Of Entirety Say the Sentence" (Wave Books, 2015). Samuel Frederick is the author of "Narratives Unsettled: Digression in Robert Walser, Thomas Bernhard, and Adalbert Stifter" (Northwestern University Press, 2012). He is an assistant professor of German at the Pennsylvania State University. With Graham Foust he has translated three volumes of poetry by Ernst Meister, including "In Time s Rift" (Wave Books, 2012), "Wallless Space" (Wave Books, 2014), and "Of Entirety Say the Sentence" (Wave Books, 2015)."
