Blossoms in Snow: Austrian Refugee Poets in Manhattan (Paperback)

Blossoms in Snow: Austrian Refugee Poets in Manhattan By Joshua Parker Cover Image


Thirty-five authors, through seventy-nine poems and short prose pieces, tell the story of the twentieth century's greatest refugee crisis. An English translation brings their work to English-speaking readers for the first time, side by side with the original German. The poems contextualize past and present responses to issues of asylum, reflect on the state of being stateless, drawing parallels between the United States and Austria, and resonating deeply with our own contemporary geopolitical landscape.
