Product Description

Swedish poet Tomas Transtromer is the 2011 recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. His articulation of the sense of what it is like to be a private citizen in the second half of the twentieth century, and beyond, conveys a sublime illumination, in a language of poetry that attunes the undistractible clarity and intensity of his vision of our implausibly existential world. Each poem in this ‘selected’ volume vies to pertain to its own world with an unbending clarity. Its contents are drawn from several published volumes: 17 Poems (1954); Secrets on the Way (1958); The half-Finished Heaven (1962); Bells and Tracks (1966); Seeing In The Dark (1970); Paths (1973); Baltics (1974); Truth-Barriers (1978); The Wild Market Square (1983); and new poems. 190p.
