transtromer

Well, at least neither Bob Dylan nor Philip Roth got it. It is definitely the turn of a poet to get it but I suspect that Tomas Tranströmer will not turn out to be a big seller. I must confess that I read very little poetry and almost none in translation so I doubt that I will read any Tranströmer. Fortunately, there is enough of his poetry in translation for those that do not read Swedish to read him. And good luck to him and thanks for sparing us from Dylan and Roth.
