Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

Ralf Rothmann, born in Schleswig, grew up in the area of the Ruhr river, and has lived in Berlin since 1976. He learned masonry, worked in different jobs, and finally became a freelance writer. While he is well known for prose that displays a raw energy in dealing with his old stomping grounds—for example, in Wäldernacht [1994, Nicht in the Woods]—his writing shows a broad range of themes and also includes poetry, such as the collection of poems Gebet in Ruinen [2000, Prayer in Ruins].

Wäldernacht (Night in the Woods) from Wäldernacht (Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp Verlag, 1994): Vol. 5, No. 3

Hitze (Heat) from Hitze (Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp Verlag, 1993): Vol. 7, No. 1

Brümmerchen (Lil' Miss Brümmer) from Ein Winter unter Hirschen (Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp Verlag, 2001): Vol. 7, No. 2/3
