About the Author

Tomas Transtromer, recipient of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Literature, was born in Stockholm in 1931 and is a psychologist by profession. One of Sweden's most distinguished poets, he has also received the Bonnier Poetry Prize and the Petrarch Prize in Germany. He lives in Stockholm with his wife, Monica.

Robin Fulton, a Scottish poet and longtime resident of Norway, has been translating Tranströmer for over thirty-five years.

Reviews

The books of his poetry on my shelves never remain unopened for long. I turn to him when I wish to come as close as possible to what cannot be said.--Teju Cole
Tomas Tranströmer's poetry permits us to be happily certain of our own uncertainties... Like the animals in Rilke's first sonnet to Orpheus, they are alive to the god's music.--Seamus Heaney
