A short selection of haunting, meditative poems from the winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Literature
Tomas Transtr#65533;mer can be clearly recognized not just as Sweden's most important poet, but as a writer of international stature whose work speaks to us now with undiminished clarity and resonance. Long celebrated as a master of the arresting, suggestive image, Transtr#65533;mer is a poet of the liminal: drawn again and again to thresholds of light and of water, the boundaries between man and nature, wakefulness and dream. A deeply spiritual but secular writer, his skepticism about humanity is continually challenged by the implacable renewing power of the natural world. His poems are epiphanies rooted in experience: spare, luminous meditations that his extraordinary images split open--exposing something sudden, mysterious, and unforgettable.
Robertson, Robin, 1955-
