Enzensberger, Germany's most important poet, is a provocative cultural essayist and one of Europe's leading political thinkers. Selected Poems is a recommended translation by the Poetry Book Society. It includes poems from collections published during the past thirty years, with a large selection from The Sinking of the Titanic, his last British collection. For George Szirtes, writing in The New Statesman, it was "a dramatic and philosophical statement of compulsive power...our emotions and our reason are driven along together as in the best of Brecht". "The author uses satire, wit, political imagination, and lyric gusto to overcome the Nazi past and to maintain his reputation as one of Germany's greatest cultural essayists and political thinkers". -- Choice.
