Poetic prose meditations translated superbly into English.
Austrian poet Friederike Mayroecker is widely considered one of the most important European poets of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The last book of hers to be published during her lifetime, as mornings and moosgreen I. Step to the window is an elliptical and, if at times cryptic, deeply personal, playful, and highly poetic collection of experiences, memories, dreams, desires, fears, visions, observations, and peregrinations through landscapes both real and imagined. The volume bears witness to her unique late lyrical style of pyrotechnical cut-up. Among many others, her beloved Derrida, Duchamp, Hoelderlin, and Jean-Paul all appear, almost like guides, as Mayroecker bravely makes her way through infirmity, old age, and loneliness, prolonging her time as a prolific writer as much as possible.
