Translated for the first time into English by Michael Hamburger, W. G. Sebald's first literary work is a beautiful and cosmically unsettling prose-poem meditation on the ceaseless cycles of destruction and rebirth, natural and man-made, that are our inheritance and our destiny. W. G. Sebald begins with a poem about the life of the German Renaissance painter Matthaeus Grunewald, whose greatest work broke new ground in its depiction of human suffering. He then turns to the German Enlightenment explorer and botanist Georg Steller and his part in a tragic expedition, ordered by Catherine the Great and led by Vitus Bering, to find a sea route from the Russian Far East to North America. Sebald concludes with journeys from his own boyhood through landscapes scarred by human folly. A work of strange and terrible beauty, After Nature confirms W. G. Sebald's stature as one of the most profound and original writers of our time.
