- DONHAUSER, Michael
- Michael Donhauser was
born in Vaduz (Liechtenstein) in 1956 and has lived in Vienna since
1976. He has written primarily prose poems. The poem, "Der Pfirsich,"
was selected from his first book with Hanser Publishing House, Von
den Dingen [1993; Of the Things]. Donhauser's approach to "things"
via language is reminiscent of Rainer Maria Rilke's project of Dinggedichte
. In his new book with Residenz Verlag, Das neue Leben [1994;
The New Life], he explores the ancient poetic tradition of haiku.
