Product description


With transcript, a new chapter began for concrete and visual poetry. (Eugen Gomringer) I consider transcript to be a major work of concrete poetry and, beyond that, proof that its methods can convey reality much more intensively than the methods of description. (Friedrich Achleitner)

About the Author

Heimrad Backer (1925-2003) was a poet, a photographer, and the editor of the journal neue texte and the Austrian avant-garde press Edition Neue Texte. As a teenager, he was active in the regional leadership of the Hitler Youth and joined the Nazi party when he turned eighteen. After the war, he studied philosophy and wrote his doctoral dissertation on Karl Jaspers. Beginning in the late 1960s, Backer attempted to come to terms with his wartime activity.

Friedrich Achleitner is a poet and architecture critic who has taught at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

Patrick Greaney is assistant professor of German and comparative literature at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Vincent Kling is professor of German and comparative literature at La Salle University in Philadelphia.
