Shoah Train Holocaust Poetry of William Heyen
A 3 page research paper/essay that examines Heyen's latest volume of Holocaust poetry. Heyen's poetry has frequently focused on the Holocaust. He published his collection The Swastika Poems in 1977, which was subsequently revised and expanded into Erika (1984). His latest volume of Holocaust poetry is Shoah Train, which encompasses more than 70 poems written over the last dozen years (Shoah Train, 2003). A great deal of Holocaust literature has addressed the question of how such evil could have taken place. The Holocaust poetry in Shoah Train does not offer the reader definitive answers, but it does reveal multiple perspectives on human nature and its seemingly engrained propensity toward violence and evil. Heyen's poetry not only illuminates the nature of the evil that was the Holocaust, but also relates this experience to today's world and the continuing legacy left by this world-altering example of what human beings are capable of perpetuating on each other.
