Reviews / Endorsements

“An indispensable volume for those who would understand the twentieth century.”—George Steiner

PAUL CELAN was born Paul Ancel of a Jewish family in Romania in 1920. In 1942 his parents were deported and died in an extermination camp. Celan escaped but was in a labour camp until 1944. In 1948 he settled in Paris, where he took up the study of German literature and became a lecturer at the École Normale Supérieur. Paris remained his home until his suicide by drowning in 1970.
