ruth-anthologyAn anthology of poems by Hans Sahl, translated by Ruth Ingram.

Hans Sahl was a great human being, who was a very well known literary, art and theatre critic, a journalist, translator and writer of prose and theatre pieces, and not least a very impressive poet, before he became a Refugee in 1933.  He is someone who should not be forgotten, and what he has to say is very relevant in the present. – Ruth Ingram
