FROM THE PUBLISHER-An International Poetry Forum Selection Translated from the Swedish by May Swenson with Leif Sjoberg. From the NEW YORK TIMES: ‘Tomas Tranströmer, who is today one of Sweden's most distinguished poets, . can compare Lake Malar at dawn with a blue lamp, the islands creeping over the grass like nocturnal butterflies. He can make his imagery credible. His work is very much a poetry centered on specific moments: the short minute that brings sudden relief, the sense of turning the back to everyday life and opening the window for a brief flash just to listen to the birds and the wind. ' In 1970 a jury of Mr. Tranströmer's peers named him the leading living poet of Sweden. This publication is a portion of that honor. Tomas Tranströmer, the poet, is also an occupational psychologist, working with handicapped people. May Swenson, the translator, is a distinguished American poet with seven books of poetry published to wide critical acclaim. Born of Swedish parents in Utah, she spoke Swedish as her first language. She brings this heritage to her superb translation. Leif Sjoberg teaches in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages, State University of New York at Stony Brook.
