Swedish Poet Transtromer Awarded 2011 Nobel Prize in Literature

The Swedish poet and writer, Tomas Transtromer, has been awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in Literature. Announcing the news, the Nobel Academy said the poet had been awarded the prize ‘because, through his condensed, transluscent images, he gives us fresh access to reality’.
The 80 year old poet lives in the UK and earlier this year Bloodaxe Books published his collected poets over the last 40 years.
