The Works of Tomas Transtromer: The Universality of Poetry

by Lee Ching Lim


"This study offers compelling and insightful close readings of Tomas Transtromer’s poetry. It covers the poet’s entire body of work, and in that regard, it is also an important contribution to the field. The writing is clear, elegant, and a pleasure to read. The quality of the prose (along with the close reading of the poetry) is one of the strongest aspects of this book." —Angela A. Frattarola, New York University

"The Works of Tomas Transtromer is a well-crafted, lucid examination of the Nobel laureate’s entire corpus of poems. Built from strong analytical skill, Lim’s illuminations of the poet’s footprints form a unique constellation, thereby allowing us to commune with the poet’s projections. This first book-length study in English is a much-needed one in contemporary literature." —Adam Staley Groves, University of Aberdeen
