Despite the fact that Bobrowski won such prestigious accolades as the Heinrich Mann Prize and Charles Veillon Prize and held an important position in the literature of postwar Germany, very little English-language scholarship has been published about his work. Scrase fills this gap by exploring the heralded writers novels, poems, and short stories.

Contending that Bobrowskis writing can be understood only by those who appreciate the ethos that pervaded East Prussia during the writers childhood, Scrase begins by reviewing the regions history and profiling the diverse ethnic and religious communities that Bobrowski encountered there. In looking at a representative sampling of Bobrowskis work, Scrase exposes the writers attempts to come to terms with Germanys destructive role in eastern Europe.

Scrase offers close readings of selected Bobrowski poems, most of which depict the landscape of Sarmatia, its rural traditions, and the daily tasks of its people. He also reviews Bobrowskis two novels, Levins Mill and Lithuanian Pianos, and explains how to read Bobrowskis short stories.
