Evening land

£35.00

Product description

"Evening Land is the first complete translation of Pär Lagerkvist's deceptively simple, ninth and final volume of poetry 'Aftonland' (Evening Land), reflecting on man's passing, and ambivalent - ecstatic or incredulous - relationship to things worldly and unwordly, known and unknown.
Translated from the Swedish by Anthony Barnett, Pär Lagerkvist (1891-1974) was one of Sweden's greatest, most prolific, twentieth-century novelists and short story writers. Born in Växjo, Småland in Southern Sweden, he was an intensely private man who refused to court publicity. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1951. Barnett's translation sets straight an earlier, unfinished and otherwise compromised version by W. H. Auden and Leif Sjöberg.

In very good condition, some slight creasing to spine.
