Enzensberger to read from work, April 11
Posted April 4, 2007; 03:00 p.m.
German poet and essayist Hans Magnus Enzensberger will read from his work at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St.
Since World War II, Enzensberger has been a catalyst for change in German intellectual and literary history. He is said to possess an almost uncanny gift of sensing aesthetic, political and social changes before his contemporaries.
Enzensberger's works include "Lighter Than Air: Moral Poems," "Zig-Zag: The Politics of Culture and Vice Versa" and "The Number Devil." He is visiting Princeton this month as a Whitney J. Oates Fellow in the Department of German.
The event is part of the Althea Ward Clark Reading Series sponsored by the Program in Creative Writing.
