Born in 1973, Ron Winkler is one of the leading poets of his generation in Germany. "In his poetry he demonstrates in a sometimes hilarious, sometimes unsettling way how an ever greater part of what in the previous century we used to call 'reality' for the sake of convenience, has been expanded and shrunk to a virtual universe in which the tactile and audible are constantly zapped, sampled, filtered and twittered. The consequence is that "on a word level, our thought collapses into fragmented, labyrinthine and ridiculously large-scale concepts". -Ard Posthuma
Fragmented Waters Paperback edition by Ron Winkler
Ron Winkler was born in 1973 and lives in Berlin. He works freelance as a writer, editor, critic and translator (from the English). In 1999, he received his M.A. in German and History Studies at Friedrich Schiller University, Jena. He is the founder of intendenzen, a poetry magazine which he edited for 10 years. His poetry has been translated into twenty languages, and featured in magazines such as The Epoch Poetry Quarterly, Australian Poetry Journal, Chicago Review, The Massachusetts Review, Jubilat, Circumference, Hamilton Stone Review, Boston Review, Blackbird and Atlanta Review. Poems in his own translations have been published in several literary magazines and anthologies. He is the author of four full-length collections in German: vereinzelt Passanten [Scattered Pedestrians] (kookbooks, Berlin 2004); Fragmentierte Gewasser [Fragmented Waters] (Berlin Verlag, Berlin 2007); Frenetische Stille [Frenetic Silence] (Berlin Verlag, Berlin 2010); Prachtvolle Mitternacht [Precious Midnight] (Schoeffling & Co., Frankfurt am Main 2013).
