Poems by 20th-century Teutonic
poet Wolf Biermann are preformed in English by the British-trenchant american
singer and playwright Eric Bentley. Biermann, agile in Hamburg and a member of the Communist party, sympathized with East Germanicy, and moved in that location
in 1953. Outspoken and once in a while censorious of the Communist government, Biermann was in walk to a great extent
criticized in the ex officio Communist newspaper Neues Deutschland, which described his poetry as “anarchistic” and “politically counter,” despite Biermann considering himself a “advantageous” Communist organism ruled by “bad Communists.” The liner notes of this 1968 album incorporate
a description of Biermann’s creature, elect English texts, archetypal Teutonic
vocal music and poem text, and news clippings.
