Product Description

Review

“The Nobel prize to Mr. Tranströmer is a momentary defeat for ideology and a great victory for poetry.” — Michael Moynihan (The Wall Street Journal)

“Like so many great poets before him, Tranströmer is forever reminding us that the world is not what it appears to be; that with mindfulness and close attention, you might get a glimpse of something vast and strange.” — John Freeman (NPR's Monkey See)

HASH(0x9fbc0c0c) out of 5 stars Tomas Transtromer Remembers his Early Years Dec 18 2012
By E. Holden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a lovely little book especially if one is a lover of Tomas Transtromer.. I confess that I wished the book had been longer with more of his interesting and delightfully told memories. It is a joy to enter and experience the childhood of this wonderful man.

HASH(0x9fbc2978) out of 5 stars For avid fans and readers of Tomas Tranströmer Feb. 9 2016
By R. M. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In 1993, at the age of sixty-two and two years after a serious stroke, Tomas Tranströmer penned this little memoir about his youth: an only child with a divorced mother, World War II (which, as they lived in Stockholm, he observed at a distance), museums and libraries, studious pursuit of entomology, grammar school, and then Latin secondary school. It is readily understandable how the serious lad Tranströmer portrays grew up to be a Nobel laureate poet.

Although it has its charms, the truth is that MEMORIES LOOK AT ME is a slight book, probably of little interest except to those who are so enamored with Tranströmer that they want to devour everything by and about him. I will say that reading it summoned up many memories from my own boyhood -- something of value to no one other than myself.

The book closes with a poem entitled "Memories Look at Me". It and the precious cover photograph of six-year-old Tomas surveying a rugged Scandinavian landscape are the most noteworthy things in the book.
