Michael Hofmann’s new book of poems, One Lark, One Horse, is out no. Our Conquest was his fifth book in five years, and the second to be translated into English. He has since published three others in Germany). The sense of the possessive in the title is objective: it is we who have been conquered. The book plays for roughly the first 24 hours of peace in a small town in Germany, on a Wednesday in May 1945; and yet, as we shall see, and as the translation has it, a little fortuitously, because the word is Ruhe (‘quiet’), ‘there’s never a moment’s peace in our town.
Gert Hofmann, German novelist who examined morality and the resonances of Nazism in postwar Germany. Honoré de Balzac and Casanova are among the historical figures represented in the four stories of Hofmann’s Gespräch über Balzacs Pferd (1981; Balzac’s Horse and Other Stories). Hofmann studied at the Universities of Leipzig and Freiburg and taught in Austria, England, and the United States. Hofmann mingled mordant wit and horror in novels such as his suspenseful Auf dem Turm (1982; The Spectacle at the Tower), in which impoverished villagers commit unspeakable depravities in hopes of amusing a pair of stranded tourists, and Unsere Eroberung (1984; Our Conquest).
Balzac's detailed lament about the arduous process of getting a play produced is topped in a macabre twist by Brissot as he describes a spectacular, real-life drama that occurs in the Parisian sewers.
