Poetry. Gay and Lesbian Studies. Translated from the Swedish by Fredrik Hertzberg. "To read Bjorling is to eat language"--Aase Berg. "Du gar de ord, the last collection of poems by the great Finland-Swedish Modernist poet Gunnar Bjorling...is a milestone in the annals of experimental poetics produced in our century"--Marjorie Perloff. "...Hovering in an aesthetic space somewhere between Dickinson and Celan, Oppen and Creeley, Gunnar Bjorling is a poet of the everyday and its words, as if the abyss between souls could ever be ordinary or ever anything else"--Charles Bernstein.
