Three-Toed Gull: Selected Poems
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungPerhaps the most widely respected and read poet of his generation in Sweden, Jesper Svenbro makes his debut in the English-speaking world with this selection of poems drawn from his seven previous volumes.
PortraitJesper Svenbro was born in 1944 in the small town of Landskrona in southern Sweden. He studied classics at Lund University and Greek with Eric Havelock at Yale, and lived in Italy and then France, where he has for many years held a post at the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique. An internationally renowned classical scholar, Svenbro has had most of his works translated into English. His first collection of poems was published in 1966; with his second, Element till en kosmologi, published in 1979, he began to be recognized as one of Sweden's most original younger poets. By now the author of many volumes, Svenbro is one of the leading and most widely read European poets of his generation.
