Helen and Kurt Wolff worked as publishers in Germany until 1940 when they were forced to flee to America. Kurt Wolff published works by many German and foreign authors. Most significantly he was Kafka's first publisher, responsible for the publication of Die Verwandlung in 1915. In the postwar period both Helen and Kurt Wolff were responsible for many good literary publications, including this Sitwell book of poems.
