"Meister's work is mesmerizingly succinct and elusive, but also ambitious to a degree almost unheard-of among presently-observed aesthetic moments. Highly recommended."--The Huffington Post "Foust and Frederick have done us all a great favor. Meister's poetry could have been lost in the rift of time that he wrote so elegantly about."--The Rumpus "A good, interesting collection, in a solid translation...In Time's Rift is a welcome volume and certainly suggests that Meister is a significant poet deserving greater attention."--Complete Review Wallless Space is a translation of German poet Ernst Meister's final collection and the last of the informal trilogy which also includes In Time's Rift (Wave Books, 2012) and Of Entirety Say the Sentence (Wave, forthcoming 2015). Meister's poems are brief but dense, intense but playful; obsessed with mortality and the intersections of the everyday and the infinite. There's nary a Maker, there's nary a witness, there's only Nature, who brings herself about herself, she alone-- and I'm supposedly lonely in her? Ernst Meister (1911--79) was born in Hagen, Germany. He was posthumously awarded the most prestigious award for German literature, the Georg Buchner Prize. Graham Foust is the author of several collections of poetry, including To Anacreon in Heaven and Other Poems (Flood Editions, April 2013). He teaches at the University of Denver. Samuel Frederick is the author of Narratives Unsettled: Digression in Robert Walser, Thomas Bernhard, and Adalbert Stifter (Northwestern University Press, 2012). He is an assistant professor of German at the Pennsylvania State University.
