The Horst Frenz Prize Citations 2011

2011 Prize Winner:

Be it known that Eugenia Kelbert of Yale University is the winner of the 2011 Horst Frenz Prize for the best presentation by a graduate student at the annual conference of the American Comparative Literature Association, which, in 2010, was held in Vancouver, Canada.

A brilliant study of Rilke’s French poetry, using different approaches, including biographical research, explication de texte, even quantitative analyses of corpora, Eugenia Kelbert's essay juxtaposes Rilke’s French poems with his poems in German with the net effect of enriching and enhancing our understanding and appreciation of both.

The American Comparative Literature Association takes pride is making this award to Eugenia Kelbert, and congratulates her on her outstanding achievement.
