In a July 2008 email exchange about a shared favorite writer (Hans Henny Jahnn), the artist Herbert Pfostl brought up an author completely unknown to me, Juergen von der Wense, saying “he is A UNIVERSE—the most astonishing mind—a beautiful discovery.” Luckily, Herbert then provided an intro to the author and some translations of aphoristic passages on his Blind Pony blog. 

Herbert: “In November 1966, a day before his 72nd birthday, composer, translator and wanderer Juergen von der Wense died in Goettingen, Germany, in an attic filled with 10,000 pages of writings on science, poetry, philosophy and music. Few splinters from it ever reached the public…”

Read the whole thing.

If you’ve read Juergen von der Wense, visit me if you ever wind up in Philadelphia. I’ll buy you a gigantic beer and beat the rest of your secrets out of you.
