An intimate portrait of Paul Celan’s early years, enriching our understanding of the poet’s life and work.

"For those already interested in Celan who don’t know Romanian, this book offers a perspective that is thoughtful and even intimate at times."—Maria Bucur, author of Heroes and Victims: Remembering War in Twentieth-Century Romania

"Solomon wanted to contribute what he could to understanding the enigma that is Paul Celan—where he came from, how he survived the immediate post-war years, what were his interests, who were his friends, what were the issues that animated and haunted him—he has much to say on this account and he says it with remarkable clarity and humanity. . . . Anyone with an interest in Paul Celan would benefit from the approach taken by Solomon."—Adrian Del Caro, author of The Early Poetry of Paul Celan: In the Beginning Was the Word

"Solomon’s important and thought-provoking study, with its exploration in particular of the hitherto little researched Romanian dimension post-1945, places challenging emphasis on the significance of historical and autobiographical context as key to a proper understanding of Celan’s work even where it may seem bafflingly hermetic."—Ian Wallace, emeritus professor of German, University of Bath
