    1 thought on “Unrecounted”

    1. I have become a bit of a Michael Hamburger fan now because of his translations of Sebald's poems collected here and his wonderful essay on both W.G. Sebald and Jan Peter Tripp found within these same pages. I came into this book carefully and I had some experienced doubt as to what I was getting myself into. But the more I read now of anything by Sebald the better I like it and understand him. These are all marvelous little poems collected here in Unrecounted. And Jan Peter Tripp's work is under [...]

    2. Stupendously beautiful, moving and haunting. Who else can write this:"This writing papersmellslike wood shavingsinside the coffin".

    3. A kind of collaboration between Sebald and one of his oldest friends, a photographer, Jan Tripp, who mainly shares lithographs of eyes in juxtaposition with Sebald's "micro poems". A conversation ensues, naturally, though not one many might be able to agree on, but this was for me really terrific, energizing. I love Sebald, and this is my first experience with his poetry. I'll try to write more later and explain more what I like about it, because I think most people who like poetry would find th [...]

    4. I have the version of this book that has a horizontal orientation. I think it is more visually striking. Also- for the fans: remember the scene in Austerlitz when he is describing the nocturama and compares the animals eyes to those of poets and thinkers? I do. And these beautiful photos called that paragraph to mind immediately.

    5. This book is a series of Micropoems (33) in this slim volume by W.G. Sebald, each one is accompanied by a pair of eyes which are actually photo realistic lithographs created by Jan Peter Tripp. Some of the individuals featured are William Burroughs, Jorge Luis Borges, Rembrandt, Francis Bacon and Javier Marias plus various other people including Sebald himself.Most of these poems are around the 20 word mark or less and although they do not have a direct relationship to the picture, act as a dial [...]

    6. "Unrecountedalways it will remainthe story of the avertedfaces"This book represents a collaboration between Sebald and the artist, and friend since their youth, Jan Peter Tripp.Tripp's illustrations dominate the book - highly lifelike lithographs of eyes taken from photos (Borges, Burroughs, Rembrandt, Sebald himself, perhaps most movingly Sebald's daughter who was later to be injured in the car crash that took Sebald's life). These are paired with brief "micropoems" from Sebald, the above being [...]

    7. Sebald's first novel, Vertigo, hypnotized me when I read it, the way Peter Handke's writing does, no one else's. Andrea Kohler describes the effect well as "the melody of a melancholic litany." These poems don't achieve the same effect, but I liked them anyway. They are tiny haiku-like observations (for me, most reminiscent of Abbas Kiarostami's poetry in Walking with the Wind), paired with Jan Peter Tripp's lithographs of eyes, viewed in a fragmenting close-up and trompe-l'oeil detail.I was mor [...]

    8. A really great interplay of images and poems that would stand well on their own, but are incredibly interesting in their interaction and dialogue as well. So overall very good, although I think I liked it more because I already enjoyed Sebald, perhaps thinking of it more as an addendum to his body of work than a stand-alone piece.

    10. my reshelving work upstairs began late, then was derailed as I stumbled upon this thin volume, one I bought 4 or so years ago. It is a collection of micropoems and an adjacent survey of the paintings of Jan Peter Tripp. there is a drizzle of the ghostly in these pairings.

    11. Michael Hamburger's introductory note is well worth reading, and makes me hope that a good biography of Sebald will appear soon.

    12. When we stand in front of a picture by Jan van Eyck we are convinced that he succeeded in depicting the inexhaustible wealth of detail in the visible world.-E.H. Gombrich, quoted in Unrecounted
