About this title

Synopsis:

Michael Hofmann has published six books of poetry: Nights in the Iron Hotel (1983), Acrimony (1986), K.S. in Lakeland: New and Selected Poems (1990), Corona, Corona (1993), Approximately Nowhere (1999), and Selected Poems (2009). With James Lasdun, he edited the influential anthology After Ovid: New Metamorphoses (1994). A selection of his criticism, Behind the Lines: Pieces on Writing and Pictures, was published in 2002. He has edited and introduced short selections of the poems of Robert Lowell (2001) and John Berryman (2003), and has edited the anthology Twentieth Century German Poetry (2006). Professor Hofmann has translated some sixty books from the German, mainly novels, including works by Ernst Junger, Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Koeppen, Joseph Roth, and Wim Wenders. His criticism appears regularly in the London Review of Books and Poetry (Chicago). For his poetry he has won a Cholmondeley Award, the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, and an English Arts Council grant; for his translations the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, the P.E.N./Book of the Month Club Translation Prize, the Weidenfeld Oxford Translation Prize (twice), and the Helen and Kurt Wolff Translator's Prize. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 2008 was a Visiting Poet to the Australian state of Queensland. He received his BA (1979) and MA (1984) in English from Cambridge University. He was first a visitor to UF in 1990, and joined the faculty in 1994, going full time in 2009. He has also been a visiting professor at the University of Michigan, Rutgers University, the New School University, and Barnard College, Columbia University. Professor Hofmann teaches poetry workshops and seminars on European poetry and translation.
