It seems as soon as there is language, there are songs and poems, which means we have more than 1500 years worth of German
poetry to explore. In 8 sessions we will sample some of German’s best, looking first at the poem in its original form, but focusing
primarily on the images and ideas of the poem in English. Can the poet still speak to us across the gap of time and language?
Does the poem still have the power to bring insights to our lives today? Join us on Zoom as we encounter these poems together.
