NICOLAS BORN: THE BILL FOR ROOM 11
Poems and Translations by MARK TERRILL

Nicolas Born: The Bill for Room 11 is a small collection of my translations of one of the most important poets of post-war Germany. Nicolas Born was born in Duisburg in 1937 and grew up on the lower Rhine before moving to Berlin in 1963. He was befriended with Günter Grass, Rolf Dieter Brinkmann, Peter Handke and many other important poets and writers. In addition to four collections of poetry, Born also wrote three novels, including Die Falschung, which was filmed by Volker Schlöndorff and starred Bruno Ganz and Hanna Schygulla. Born died of cancer in 1979. His collected poems and a selection of his letters were published by Wallstein in 2007.
