Starting out from the poems of a lyric poet living in the countryside of the Lower Rhine region from the 1960s to the 1990s, “Im toten Park” gives an account of West German post-war history. Dieter Liewerscheidt's poems prove to be meta-texts about a now remote epoch – that of the old Federal Republic – as palimpsests in which literary tradition, everyday linguistic rubbish and second-hand media phrases are overwritten several times.
