Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

Rainer Malkowski was born in Berlin in 1939. After working in advertising for many years, he decided to become a writer, and in 1972 he and his wife moved from Düsseldorf to Upper Bavaria. He died September 3, 2003. Awarded with many prizes, his poetic production includes the collections Ein Tag für Impressionisten [1994, A Day for Impressionists], Hunger und Durst [1997, Hunger and Thirst], Das Meer steht auf [1998, The Sea Stands Up], and his last collection, Die Herkunft der Uhr [2004, The Origin of the Clock]. His poems are grounded in a sense of locality which provides a basis for the reflection of experiences.
