Dark Horse Tomas Transtromer Wins 2011 Nobel Prize in Literature

The largely unknown and unsung Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer was the surprising winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Most of us are ignorant of this 80-year old Swedish poet whose poems have been translated into more than 60 languages so far. One of his latest books is The Deleted World .

Two truths approach each other. One comes from inside, the other from outside, and where they meet we have a chance to catch sight of ourselves.

~ Tomas Transtromer
