Jan Wagner

(Germany, 1971)

Jan Wagner chooses topics for his poetry close to home, in the things, animals, landscapes and situations which are part of our everyday reality. But the result transcends observation by means of his surprising perspective, the musicality of the language and the subtle use of classical verse forms. Wagner's work always includes an essence of restlessness, the suggestion of an unexpected turn. The world of everyday things is absurd in its characteristics and paradoxical in its manifestations. And so there is always room for the unexpected. Wagner shows us that this is exactly what we can always expect.
