Country house, one long single ground floor, facing the south. Preserved by some outbuilding forming perpendicular garlic, to the right.
from étudesby Friederike Mayröcker, translated from the German by JD Larson
Friederike Mayröckers work has been to live and to write, continually and daringly exploding the limitations of language. Her collection études, published in 2013 by Suhrkamp, is a poem arranged by date, spanning 14.3.11 (or 3/14/11) to 16.12.12 (or 12/16/12).
