Ulrich Horstmann

"As an academic cleaner fish for the greats - Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, Ted Hughes, Philip Larkin, J.M. Coetzee - Ulrich Horstmann has also tried to swim free himself, but after his emergence among the Kleist Prize winners (1988) possibly left scales. Perhaps that's the reason for the move into the dark undercurrents, to which the Robert Burton translation from the same year owes as much as the essay volume Ansichten vom Großen Umsonst (1991) and the Versuch über ein angeschwärztes Gefühl (2012)."
