Nora Gomringer(Germany, 1980)
Her unique style and love of combining art forms have made her one of the best-known poets in Germany.
Though only 38, Nora Gomringer has already built up an impressive oeuvre. Her poems are eclectic and refreshing, using repetition to great effect, but also constructions that are deceptive in their simplicity ("I kiss you/ Kiss me too"). Yet often lurking deeper in the text are heavier themes, such as illness or the Holocaust. And in some poems these themes are even inescapable. Such poems are explicit and visual, such as 'The Girls in Bergen-Belsen'. Gomringer loves the stage, and it shows in her work, too. Her unique style and love of combining art forms have made her one of the best-known poets in Germany.
