Gold autumn, in its coat of rain-drenched grays: Four German poets translated by William Ruleman

Today, we’re delighted to feature new translations of seasonal poems by four German poets—Paul Boldt, Alfons Petzold, Georg Heym, and Hedwig Lachmann—by William Ruleman. The autumnal theme unifies this selection, highlighting the poets’ individual voices.

And remember, in September and beyond: read, share, and spread the word about your favorite works in translation using #NTM2017. Now more than ever, it’s important to make your voice heard.

—Claudia Serea and Loren Kleinman
