Ernst Jandl was a German poet. Delia set some of his poems to music for the 1966 radio programme German Concrete Poetry.

He is also mentioned in the Radio Times entry for Bob Cobbing's poetry An ABC in Sound:

Since the success of Ernst Jandl's reading at the Albert Hall last June considerable interest has been aroused in attempts to develop an art of pure sound.[1]

but this is not his work with Delia because the article refers to June of 1965, whereas Delia's work on his poetry was carried out between June and December 1966.[2]
