From an underlying past

someone peeps out, a part of me

embodied in another, a third

someone prepared to sacrifice everything.

Groping in secret. Wait and see.

I dream of blood. [...]

Boel Schenlaer is a whirlwind of a poet, playwright, editor and literary impresario in Sweden. She is also a bit of a nomad and writes about that, writes about the interzone where the familiar begins to fade and the Other, strange, foreign, crowded and confusing, begins to infiltrate consciousness with a tumult of sensation, gorgeous unknowable words, and fleeting, enigmatic encounters. This is the zone of translation (between cultures, peoples, languages) and transcendence. It’s ironic then that we also have here translations from the Swedish (by Alan Crozier) of Schenlaer’s translations of her experience, experience doubly displaced — something in this [...]

Igår kväll var jag på en poesiuppläsning på det fina biblioteket ”Knjižnica Bogdan Ogrizović” i centrala Zagreb. Det var Boel Schenlaer som läste ur sin senaste diktsamling Nomad i exil och sida vid sida med originalen lästes Željka Černoks översättningar upp av Ana Brnardić Oproiu. Själv var jag vid sidan av Ana någon sorts moderator och eftersom jag var så koncentrerad på denna min uppgift glömde jag kameran, så det blir inga bilder från evenemanget. Publiken bestod av medlemmar ur det kroatiska författarförbundet och ”en intresserad allmänhet”.

häftet, vars röda ram jag skurit ur bilden, innehåller 18 dikter i original och i [...]

Calling for the Swedish Poetry Revolution!

 

This year the 9th alive-and-kicking Södermalms Poesifestival in Sweden took place outdoors, in the Indian summer of Kungsträdgården, by the square of Karl XII, in the very center of Stockholm. We had two readings on the open-air stage – presented by Sam Carlquist, the program director – on Wednesday the 28th as well as one on Thursday the 29th, so the audience were sitting, listening, resting in the sun, with their eyes closed; isn’t that a beautiful and telling picture of the perfect poetry [...]

Nos hallaron en cuclillas, arrodillados en la arena.

Yo también fui el buitre sin clemencia

Torturado pero en silencio yacías a la espera. [...]
