Schwerelos Gleiten/Slipping Through Water, haibun by Ruth Franke


Categories: ,


This innovative new book by Ruth Franke combines short prose and verse
(haibun) with visual artistic impressions. The 22 pieces invite the
reader to enter the atmosphere of the different scenes and allow the
multi-layered content to take effect. English versions by David Cobb
and Celia Brown. The preface by Jim Kacian, “The Waves/Die Wellen,” not
only encapsulates the book’s content but is also an essay in its own
right. The third component is the visual parallel world from paintings
by Reinhard Stangl. They introduce the four chapters and and range
across memories, sea and dreams to the storms of life. The title is
echoed not only in the beautifully designed cover but also in other
paintings in which water constitutes the dominant element. A volume to
be read over and over again.
