About the Book

A Poetry Book Society recommendation

Arranged in three parts - the first concerning other people's lives, the second autobiographical, the third to do with the poet's travels in Mexico - Corona, Corona displays to the full Michael Hofmann's gift for compressed and vividly pointed reportage. It offers some of the boldest, frankest and most searching poetry of our time.

  • Michael Hofmann

    Michael Hofmann was born in 1957 in Freiburg, Germany, and came to England in 1961. He has published four volumes of poems and won a Cholmondeley Award and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize for poetry. His translations have won many awards, including the Independent's Foreign Fiction Award, the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and the P.E.N./Book of the Month Club Translation Prize. His reviews and criticism are gathered in Behind the Lines (2001). Ashes for Breakfast - his translations of the poetry of Durs Grunbein - appeared in 2005, and his Selected Poems was published in 2008.

“Hofmann's is one of the definitive bodies of work of the last half-century.”
- Stephen Knight, Times Literary Supplement
“Hofmann has begun to acquire real authority as an observer of contemporary Britain: he is one of the best we have.”
- Blake Morrison, London Review of Books
