Ernst Jandl
Birth: Aug. 1, 1925
Vienna (Wien), Austria
Death: Jun. 9, 2000
Vienna (Wien), Austria

Austrian poet, translator. He was born in 1925 in Vienna. He began publishing poems in 1956 and quickly attracted the attention as the wittiest and most exuberant of experimental poets, with a knack for uncovering the comic potential in discrepancies between sound and spelling, in clichés, mispronunciations, dialect etc. He has translated Gertrude Stein, Robert Creeley's The Island, and John Cage's Silence. Among his many literary prizes in both Austria and Germany are the Georg-Trakl-Preis (1974), Georg-Büchner-Preis and Grosser Österreichischer Staatspreis (both 1984). He died in June, 2000. (bio by: Apats)
