WINNER OF THE 1966 NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE
O the Chimneys, published with great success in 1967, introduced to American readers approximately half the poetic body of work of the co-winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. The late Nelly Sach's new book, The Seeker, in bilingual citation with German and English on facing pages, completes the publication of her poetry in this country.
The seven-part poem, "The Seeker" from which this collection derives its title, is the most recent work of Miss Sachs to have been published in German. The book also includes the final, fourth part of Glowing Enigmas, and the un- translated poems from In the Habita- tions of Death, Eclipse of the Stars, And No One Knows How to Go On, Flight and Metamorphosis, Journey into a Dust- less Realm, and Death Still Celebrates Life.
