Winners of the poetry prize of the literary magazine Peter Fischer’s poetry “Ananke”, first appeared in may, is already in its second edition. From the Thuringian Suhl, author, who had been awarded the poetry prize of the literary magazine “Betrothed” to the beginning of the year, did so on the narrow path of this specific genre very successfully to assert themselves, after he came out only with individual publications in various journals. Roman Mohlmann, editor in Chief and publisher of the Literaturzitschrift “Taliteratur”, praised in his meeting, fishermen understand the seal “as a powerful and expressive art form in itself”, that beyond the vogue the Zeitgeist is effort to “fundamental and ambitious poetry in modern as classic perfection” and with him find a highly idiosyncratic loft. “As skilled word artist and renowned prize winner mixed fishing motifs of classical mythology with those of modern life and thinking entitled”. Thomas Klatt by the “Lusatian Rundschau”on”Ananke”(2nd Edition, ISBN 978-3-933022-52-3) praised it mountains especially”Sensitive lyrics and wonderful verses”and cited enthusiastically from the”time issues”:” it was not until yesterday, Eheu / Fugaces anni…
that I stroked the glossy buds of yours / towering breasts, your / hair is stirred and the rose, cut / best, drink your water, / sipped Grusiniens tea and a / Tergo me bent the infernal clock / des schilfernden life? ” “Was / it not yesterday?…” Thoma Klatt summed up: “Ananke” was “Almost a zartlichs book between sadness and joy of life placed”. What is special about Fischer’s poetry is skillfully exclusive recourse to language, which he associate knows in cool calculated way with the great thinking of antiquity, without losing the action of the present sight. Just their immediate topicality opposes to the still ongoing to prejudice, the poetry of modernity was therefore the “layman” difficult to understand, inaccessible and anyway hardly ausdeutbar. In “Childhood I” reflects the poet of the early death of his father, who was killed in the last days of the second World War: “the winter seemed long / over.” Long ago, the snow was also to northern slopes already / melted, the blossoms of the cherry / Brown and the cross to moving fountain bitter and yellow. “Because the light abruptly dampened may / pushed me to… the breeze orphans” Peter Fischer so far this compost ion a very distinctive idiosyncratic notation which he knows to follow the route of time and space is long. While he has always “I” endangered one of every individual in a very uncertain modern times as well as in the views such as the “trace of the plow”, but also “shower man hunger” and recognizable continued and insatiably seemingly “greed the tycoons”. The poet, as the author with the novel “The ticket” (3rd Edition 2007, ISBN 978-3-933022-462), which has a youth in the divided Germany on the subject, successful was, fell into the sieve ornamental years in the workings of the Stasi, has been in political detention and ransomed by the Bundesregieurng in 1975.
