Tomas Transtromer

"often the shadow feels more real than the body"  
from After a Death
by Tomas Tranströmer

The link above is to a lovely film about the new Nobel laureate from UK publishers Bloodaxe Books - via Dave Bonta's Moving PoemsSuch a beautiful and well-judged film, saved from overwhelmingly emotionality by the poet's words, which are often sad, but always intricate, engaging and attentive.
