Clemens Meyer discusses the books of his childhood, American cinema, and life.
Where does that come from? What is that? Who is radical? What is relevant? In the renowned Frankfurt Poetry Lectures, Clemens Meyer discusses the sound of modernity, mirrors of the present, and splinterings in the mind. He talks about the books of his childhood, about German and American writers, and about the films that have shaped his writing. He is a connoisseur and enthusiast of literature, a maniacal reader and ardent advocate. His thinking and writing on literature is as earnest as it is impassioned and anarchic.
Clemens Meyer held the Frankfurt poetics lectureship in the summer of 2015.
