I've mostly translated this. I've marked in red the few passages I either couldn't translate or where I think my translation is quite likely wrong. It still has no narrative thread. If someone wants to take on finishing this up, it's all yours. You might also find it useful to look at the German-language article. -- Jmabel 07:39, 13 Mar 2004 (UTC)
I took it further myself, in a more patient mood, and dealt with everything except one paragraph that still throws me. It's not actively bad as it stands but... he's a writer, and there is nothing here to indicate what he wrote about, what his ideas were, or (other than being award-winning) why anyone would want to read him. -- Jmabel 17:43, 14 Mar 2004 (UTC)
