Other Literary Forms
Although Johannes Bobrowski is remembered primarily for his poetry, he did publish two critically acclaimed experimental novels: Levins Mühle: 34 Sätze über meinen Grossvater (1964; Levin’s Mill, 1970) and Litauische Claviere (1966; Lithuanian pianos). He also wrote several short stories, which are collected in the following volumes: Boehlendorff und andere Erzählungen (1965; Boehlendorff and other stories), Mäusefest und andere Erzählungen (1965; festival of the mice and other stories), and Der Mahner (1967; I Taste Bitterness, 1970). Working as a reader at an East German publishing house, he had the opportunity to edit books by others, including collections of legends and poetry. Recordings of several of his poems are available.
