Bright Scythe

Selected Poems by Tomas Tranströmer

By Tomas Tranströmer, David Wojahn

Newly translated bilingual English and Swedish edition of late Nobel Prize winner's "unobtrusively unforgettable" poetry.

Tomas Tranströmer (1931-2015), winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, is Sweden's most acclaimed poet. Known for sharp imagery, startling metaphors and deceptively simple diction, his luminous poems offer mysterious glimpses into the deepest facets of humanity, often through the lens of the natural world. These new translations by Patty Crane, presented side by side with the original Swedish, are tautly rendered and elegantly cadenced. They are also deeply informed by Crane's personal relationship with the poet and his wife during the years she lived in Sweden, where she was afforded greater insight into the nuances of his poetics and the man himself.
