Poetry Library Book Club - Tomas Tranströmer | 30-Jul-12

Tomas Tranströmer

Poetry Library
Monday 10 September 2012, 6:30pm

Join us in the Poetry Library to discuss the work of Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer, winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Long celebrated as a master of the arresting, suggestive image, Seamus Heaney has said of him 'Tomas Tranströmer's poetry permits us to be happily certain of our own uncertainties...'.

During this event we are referring to the English versions of Robin Robertson, published as The Deleted World (Enitharmon, 2006) and described by John Burnside as 'honourable, lyrically rich and deeply sympathetic'.
