Friederike Mayröcker

brütt

»brütt«. To Friederike Mayröcker a symbol of pain and hardship, of the cold and of grief, were it not for the »sighing gardens« that lend a soft counterbalance to the stirrings of love that she traces carefully. But did it really happen, the relationship with Joseph, or is it nothing but a chimera, but wishful thinking? In the midst of the raptures of love, certainty is never within reach. Nevertheless, the author is able to bring order into the hazy states of mind, to give name to the sensations felt and to track the inexplicable. In her unmistakable linguistic accuracy, she exposes the fragile core of love layer by layer and thus frees herself from the chains of the unspeakable.
