Product Description

The Long-Awaited, Definitive Translations
Of Denmark’s All-Time Best-Selling Poet


Reading Mr. Goldman’s translations of Benny Andersen’s poems is sheer pleasure. He has captured the quirkiness and inimitable flavor of Andersen’s language. An impressive collection that will be appreciated by a wide audience.
    Nete Schmidt, Ph.D., Department of Scandinavian Studies,

Superb choice for connoisseurs of multicultural poetry, worthy of the highest recommendation.
    Susan Bethany, Midwest Book Review

Canonized, memorized, and treasured in Denmark for over half a century, Benny Andersen’s enduring poetry finds a sure voice in Michael Goldman’s delicate and humorous translations. In Andersen’s universe, spiritual revelations are achieved through the quotidian with heartfelt irony, and Goldman unfailingly translates these juxtapositions, rendering a great service to English-language readers. I loved this collection, including the touching foreword.

This translation has mastered the linguistic challenges. Captivating word play…enchanting imagery.

        Author of Benny Andersen: A Critical Study
