Thomas Strömquist
My second favorite poet of all time, a real coming-of-age book for my generation. And what's planted early stays deep I guess (either that or you grow up to hate it or simply dismiss it with slight bewilderment of how you ever...). The first kind is the best I think.

Din värme,
It's a bit difficult to review poetry, so I'm not going to. I will only say that I enjoyed reading this collection, some parts better than others (I think my favourite poems came from the first part "Clouds" most of all, but I have marked out poems all over the collection). My favourite poems I think all deal with loneliness, nature, death, and the self. I think Boye wrote quite beautifully, and many of the poems have a beautiful ring to them as well (I'm weak to rhythm and rhyme when done prope ...more
Rebecka (is hilarious, shut up)
I've read this a couple of times now, over a couple of years, and I'm still as hopelessly in love with her poetry as the day three years ago I first read "De Dödsdömda".
It takes a lot for a poet to stay with me that long.

The Goddess of my life. She explains life as it is and with minimal wording. Gotta love her!
Jag är ännu inte tillräckligt van i att läsa dikter för att ge något betyg.

Karin Boye was a Swedish poet and novelist.

She is perhaps most famous for her poems, of which the most well-known ought to be "Yes, of course it hurts" (Swedish: "Ja visst gör det ont") and "In motion" (Swedish: "I rörelse").
