For more than fifty years, Ror Wolf has kept the protagonist of his ballads stumbling from one grotesque catastrophe to the next. He’s sent him on dangerous journeys, yet despite all adversity, Hans Waldmann proves equal to every adventure.

To celebrate the 85th birthday of Ror Wolf, HANS WALDMANN’S ADVENTURES appear for the first time in a single volume. Ulrike Almut Sandig, poet and admirer of Ror Wolf’s work, has written an afterword to examine, explore and explain the Waldmann cosmos.

The great F.W. Bernstein’s words still hold true today: ›His life keeps going on and on / Waldmann never will be gone.‹


»HANS WALDMANNS ABENTEUER are among the most delightful things being published in contemporary comic poetry. «
Robert Gernhardt

»The last great song poet of German postwar literature.«
Radio Bremen, Michael Augustin
