Humboldtstreet, Roman Red
A book of love poetry which expressly confirms that he possesses, certainly the most concentrated poetic voice of his generation'.
Sender Freies Berlin
Programmed happiness, love, experiences of love, then, are the subject of these new poems that are also all-too-aware of the threats to love and lovers: 'Yet one should not trust lovers.'

»Hensel writes with a strictly concentrated, laconic poetic language that recognises its responsibility to the poetic modern age. His poems are best compared with the elegiac poetry of Peter Huchel and Johannes Bobrowski: with a lyricism that trusts in the evocative power of the single word.«
