Biography

Herbert "Harry" Kuhner (born 1935 in Vienna) is an Austrian writer and translator.

Life

Kuhner emigrated with his parents to the US in 1935 and graduated from Columbia University. He returned to Vienna in 1963, where he is still working as a writer and translator. He came up with the concept of remigration, which is "a neologism, which means coming back to where you have been driven out."

The President of Austria conferred on him the title of Professor.

Herbert Kuhner's translations have been advocating the literature of Austrian ethnic groups in particular and made them accessible for an English-speaking audience. Furthermore, he compiled an anthology of Austrian lyric poetry after 1945 through Schocken Books.
