Hyperion, or the Hermit in Greece
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Though Hölderlin is now established as a great lyric poet, recognition of his novel as a supreme achievement of European Romanticism has been belated in the Anglophone world. Incorporating the aesthetic evangelism that is a characteristic feature of the age, Hyperion preaches a message of redemption through beauty. The resolution of the contradictions and antinomies raised in the novel is found in the act of articulation itself. To a degree remarkable in a prose work of any length, what it means is inseparable from how it means. In this skilful translation, Gaskill conveys the beautiful music and rhythms of Hölderlin?s language to an English-speaking reader.

Hölderlin's only novel, Hyperion, is still not widely enough known in the English-speaking world despite its unquestionable importance. Now its moment has come in a new translation by Howard Gaskill, who probably knows the book better than anyone else alive. His version is the fruit of long years of loving attention, and it catches much of the beauty and texture of the original—its rhythms, diction, variety and shifts of style.
—Prof. Charlie Louth, University of Oxford
This is a superb version of Hölderlin's novel: accurate, elegant and inspiring. It will at long last bring this major text of German literature within the reach of the Anglophone public. Although Hölderlin is acclaimed as a poet among English-speaking readers and is also known as a philosopher, his achievement as a novelist has hitherto remained unrecognised. Gaskill will remedy this and henceforth this great novel will be read by students of European Romanticism and all lovers of Hölderlin's work.
