Inhaltsangabe: A rich variety of perspectives from Sonia Akesson, Kristina Lugn, Barbro Dahlin, Margareta and Johanna Ekstrom, Elis. Hermodsson, Katarina Frostenson, Eva Strom, Marie Lunddquist and Elisabeth Rynell, enlighten us on the women's entry into what was a man's world of poetry in the 1060s through the yearly awakening in spring from the nordic light and a long dark winter in southern Sweden; and a poem on a child in Afghanistan today, naked, "whose shout is not heard." With inspired translations by Eva Claeson, we are invited to hear the original voices and their transparent rendering in English. "Helene Cixous stated in 1975 that only if women write their own lives will a new and rebellious text appear that will change the world and history. It is that rebellious text ...in Eva Claeson's selection of poems by contemporary Swedish women poets." --from the introduction by Ia Dubois.
About the Author: Short bios are provided for each of the 10 poets: Akeson wrote socially critical poems in 1957 in the style of the New Simplicity, contrasting with the romantic poetry of the times, where women were often unchallenged in the 'safe and secure'; Sweden; K.Lugn has written 8 poetry collections and writes for the theater; Babro Dahlin was a practicing psychiatrist, poet and novelist; M.Ekstrom, critic and literary columnist, translator of Virginia Wolfe, writer of short stories and nature, translated by Eva Claeson. Her daughter Johanna, b.1970, has published collections of plays, poetry, prose and short stories. E. Hermodssen is painter and poet, with essays on philosophy and politics, prose fiction, songs and 2 musicals. K.Frostenson also translates from French and is a member of the Swedish Academy of Arts and Letters. Eva Strom, after 15 years as physician, writes plays and reviews, and poems on a civilization in crisis. Marie Lundquist's prose poems deal with the gamut of human emotions, guilt and death; Elisabeth Rynell, writing poetry and prose in the far north, often deals with moral and political issues, or the world around her: Summer is always about to die, and the nights poach us like eggs; Eva Claeson, translator, lives north of Amherst in Massachusetts, where she has just translated a historical/political biography considered by the author as a novel, and has written her own short stories, poems, and a novel. She co-founded the literary translation magazine Metamorphoses, now under the auspices of Smith College.
