From the publisher

This collection of Trakl's essential poetry contains the two books published in his lifetime, "Gedichte" ('Poems', 1913) and "Sebastian im Traum" ('Sebastian in a Dream', 1914), together with the later poems published in the magazine "Der Brenner" which might have formed the nucleus of a third collection. His starkly beautiful, musical poems are rightly regarded as being among the early twentieth century's most original poetry. From a life marred by drug addiction and breakdowns, he created work of great depth and power, brought hauntingly to life in Margitt Lehbert's close and sympathetic versions.
