Translating Joachim Ringelnatz

I've been working on translations of poems by German writers over the past few years. Recently, I become a little obsessed with Joachim Ringelnatz, a subversive artist and writer who was the contemporary of Otto Dix and George Grosz.

Thanks to Julie Brooks Barbour at Connotation Press for publishing two of these gems by Ringelnatz. I had a ton of fun translating them.

You can find Im Park (In the Park) and Die Schnupftabakdose (The Snuffbox) at the following link:
