The first English translation of Peter Handke’s long poem To Duration (Gedicht an die Dauer). “Peter Handke’s long poem Gedicht an die Dauer came out in 1986 and has only just been brought out in English, as To Duration, in a fine translation by Scott Abbott… Handke is one of the shining literary lights of our time and it says a great deal about the insularity of our culture that this profound and beautiful poem has had to wait almost thirty years to appear in English.” —Gabriel Josipovici, “Books of the Year”, The Times Literary Supplement, 27.11.15
