For this paper I have selected three contemporary authors whose texts are representative of the latest trends in German lyric poetry- or more precisely, lyric poetry in the German language: Durs Grünbein, Richard Exner and Erich Fried. Ours Grilnbein stands for a recent poetic trend that blends in (East German) Marxism, nihilism and postmodern ideas. Richard Exner, an American Germanist, explores some poetical discourses of Judea-Christian mythology whilst Erich Fried writes in the tradition of (Western) Socialism, Judaism and 19th century German Idealism.
