About this title

Synopsis:

This exploration of a poet's German heritage embraces his travels with his family to the land of his ancestry, his reflections upon Brueghel and Dürer, and his confronting of the Holocaust's legacy.

About the Author:

Norbert Krapf grew up in Jasper, Indiana, a German community, and taught, from 1970 to 2004, at Long Island University, where he directed the C. W. Post Poetry Center for eighteen years. He now lives in Indianapolis. A graduate of St. Joseph's College (Rensselaer, Indiana), which awarded him an honorary doctorate, he received his M.A. and Ph.D. in English and American Literature from the University of Notre Dame. His poetry volumes include the trilogy Somewhere in Southern Indiana, Blue-Eyed Grass: Poems of Germany, and Bittersweet Along the Expressway: Poems of Long Island, as well as The Country I Come From, nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, Looking for God's Country, and Invisible Presence: A Walk through Indiana in Photographs and Poems, with Darryl Jones. He is the editor of Finding the Grain, a collection of pioneer German journals and letters from his native Dubois County, and Under Open Sky, a gathering of writings, by contemporary American poets, on William Cullen Bryant. He is also the translator/editor of Shadows on the Sundial: Selected Early Poems of Rainer Maria Rilke and Beneath the Cherry Sapling: Legends from Franconia. Winner of the Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, he has been a U.S. Exchange Teacher at West Oxon Technical College, England, and Fulbright Professor of American Poetry at the Universities of Freiburg and Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.
