Passionately Aware of Past Civilisations. Poems by Benno Barnard
(Paul Binding) THE LOW COUNTRIES - 2016, № 24, PP. 298-299
Benno Barnard is as passionately aware of past civilisations, of earlier testaments to the complications of being alive, as his felicitously ubiquitous mentor, T.S. Eliot. The translator David Colmer has worked together with the author, a kind of metric mentor for him, for many years before preparing this representative selection of his work.
