The page of Rinck, Monika, English biography
Monika Rinck is a unique poet whose poetological thinking equals her poetry itself in stature and subtlety. A poeta docta of the post-modern overdrive, she confidently combines linguistic reflections, romanticism, and popular culture, Rilke, Johnny Cash and biking, along with a dash of applied biology. Her poems are borne by a stylistic irony that from time to time salubriously breaks out into a solidly constructed pathos, in so doing healing the poem’s reader.
Monika´s most important collections of poetry:
- Verzückte Distanzen (2004),
- zum fernbleiben der umarmung (2007),
- Helle Verwirrung (2009) sowie
- Honigprotokolle (kookbooks 2012).
