Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer (1931 - ) won the Nobel Prize for Literature for 2011 today.

The Swedish Academy praised Tranströmer’s work for its “condensed, translucent images” through which “he gives us fresh access to reality.”

Dr. Ia Dubois, who teaches the Graduate Seminar on Nordic Poetry at the University of Washington, will speak this afternoon on NPR.
