This poem is dedicated to one of my favourite German poets Hilde Domin. I was introduced to her poetry and her theory about poetry when I studied social work and it has been an inspiration every since.Especially since I have decided to immigrate to the UK. Hilde Domin did not really decide or only partly to immigrate to the Dominican Republic. She was Jewish so she had not a real choice in the 1930’s and 40’s. Her artist’s name is a dedication to the country that gave her safety in Nazi times.
The link I set in the third line of the poem leads to a page which at the bottom gives you more information about this incredible poet.
