Kerstin Hensel is one of the most productive and successful young writers in Germany today. From the late 1970s onwards she has published in a wide variety of genres, although she remains best known for her novels, short stories and poetry. Her most important work to date is the story Tanz am Kanal (1994), which has received much acclaim and has been widely discussed. Hensel has won a wide range of literary prizes and scholarships.

 

In accordance with the aims of this series, this book is intended both as an introduction for the general reader and as a resource for the specialist. Through a series of academic articles the volume analyses all aspects of Hensel’s writing, including poetry, plays and prose. It brings together the most up-to-date research on her work, from Britain, the United States, and Germany. The volume also includes a previously unpublished story by Hensel, and an interview with the author held during her period as writer-in-residence at University of Wales Swansea in September 2000. It concludes with a comprehensive bibliography.
