Summary (From the publisher):

German Requiem recounts the haunted memory and experience of war as seen through a child's eyes, the most vulnerable and impressionable witness to man's inhumanity to man. Each poem is the crystallized image of a particular experience cast into narrative poetic form and impelled by powerful emotion. Collectively, the poems describe a psychic journey from loss, dislocation, and suffering through the healing catharsis of art, which transmutes all grief into beauty.
