An updated edition of his Collected Poems (1988), this volume takes readers on a wonderful journey through Transtromer's forty-year writing career. Included are the poems from his most recent collections, For the Living and the Dead and the Sorrow Gondola (Dedalus/Dufour), which included the first new poems to be written and published after his recent devastating stroke. New Collected Poems also includes "Memories Look at Me", his prose memoir. Transtromer's early work drew on the aesthetic traditions of Swedish nature poetry, while his later work has become more personal, more open and relaxed. In 1990 Tomas Transtromer was awarded the Neustadt International Prize for Literature.
