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 forth from a keen attention to the natural world. Comprising poems that span the beginnings of Modernism to today, The Star By My Head: Eight Swedish Poets is breathtaking, and internationally acclaimed poets and translators Malena Mörling and Jonas Ellerström offer stark, exquisite translations in this essential bilingual volume. Published in partnership with the Poetry Foundation, The Star By My Head is the premiere American anthology of twentieth- and twenty-first-century Swedish poetry in English translation.
