In Daily News, Swedish poet and Nobel laureate Tomas Tranströmer, considered one of the most influential contemporary Scandinavian poets, passed away on Thursday at age eighty-three. The New York Times notes that the poet’s work, which has been translated into over sixty languages, was known for “shrewd metaphors couched in deceptively spare language, crystalline descriptions of natural beauty and explorations of the mysteries of identity and creativity.” (Source: https://www.facebook.com/poetsandwriters?fref=nf&pnref=story)
