Memories of Herbert Achternbusch – Culture


Willi Winkler

In the seventies far from the moon, the publisher Hubert Burda founded the Petrarca Prize, named after the poet who discovered nature as a subject for poetry in the 14th century. Five jurors, all writers, selected the winner. The first was Rolf Dieter Brinkmann, who died shortly before the award. In 1977 it became the poet and filmmaker Herbert Achternbusch.
