Nelly Sachs Tribute

I have just created a new page on this blog dedicated to the poetry of Nelly Sachs, with my translations of her poems. This is not food to everyone’s taste and may prove indigestible to some. However, as a Jewish woman who escaped the Holocaust by the skin of her teeth, Nelly Sachs wrote poetry that – in my view – is as relevant today as it was when first published. I feel it should be available to those who don’t understand German, and hope that some of you will appreciate her work in these translations.
