Tuesday, 04/10/2022 / 07:30 PM / House of Literature Freiburg
The Literaturhaus series Homage to a Daredevil asks about reading biographies, revival experiences, books of the heart. On this evening, author and translator Jan Wilm will leaf through the multifaceted oeuvre of Ror Wolf in conversation with fellow writer Annette Pehnt. One of the most astounding in the German-language literary landscape, since the 1950s he has conquered every conceivable genre and medium, from image collages to prose, poetry, essay, radio play, and film, combining virtuosic formal rigor with idiosyncratic humor, fueled by an immense desire for renewal. On the occasion of his 90th birthday, Jan Wilhelm's memoir Ror.Wolf. Lesen (Schöffling, 2022), a tribute to the poet and at the same time an invitation to those familiar with Ror and those new to Wolf to a celebration of language, images and sounds.
