"GÖran Sonnevi's presence in Swedish poetry of this century is a powerful one. He holds to creatures such as birds and worms and to the patterns of politics with the same passion. He won't turn his eyes away from the delights of sensual married life or the horror of capitalism. At his best, he is a sensuous, ethical poet, a surprising union. Rika Lesser's translations are skillful and true."--Robert Bly "Through the power of Rika Lesser's brilliant translations, GÖran Sonnevi's poetry is shown to be what it is: the work of one of the world's major poets."--Lawrence JosephSonnevi, Goran is the author of 'Child Is Not a Knife Selected Poems of Goran Sonnevi' with ISBN 9780691015439 and ISBN 0691015430.
