The Re-Read: Michael Crummey on Tomas Tranströmer
September 29 at 5:30pm
Join us as we explore the influential books and writers who defined genres and captivated readers for decades. Each session of The Re-Read features a contemporary writer discussing a favourite book or author, to offer their insight as an author and share their joy as a reader. In this session, Canadian poet and author Michael Crummey will present his latest poetry collection Passengers. Eclectic, unpredictable and strange, the first section of Crummey’s collection follows Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer on an imagined circumnavigation of Newfoundland. Among his many awards, including the Nobel Prize in Literature, Tranströmer was one of Sweden’s leading poets of his generation; known for his lyrical style, in which nature is the active, energizing subject. See Canadian landscape through a new lens as Michael Crummey takes you on a journey through Newfoundland from the perspective of the great poet Tranströmer.
