Product Description

Published in partnership with the Poetry Foundation, The Star By My Head is a breathtaking anthology of poems featuring eight of Sweden's most highly regarded poets, including Nobel Prize winner Tomas Tranströmer.

From Edith Södergran to Gunnar Ekelöf to Nobel Prize-winning Tomas Tranströmer, Sweden has long been home to a rich and luminous poetic tradition, notable for refreshing openness, striking honesty, and a rare transcendence that seems to spring from a keen attention to the natural world. With poems that span from the beginnings of Modernism to present day, The Star By My Head: Eight Swedish Poets is an essential bilingual volume that offers stark, exquisite translations by internationally acclaimed poets and translators Malena Mörling and Jonas Ellerström. Published in partnership with the Poetry Foundation, The Star By My Head is the premiere American anthology of 20th- and 21st-century Swedish poetry in English translation.
