Publisher's Synopsis

Marie Silkeberg has been a major voice in Swedish poetry since the early 1990s. In these poems, drawn from her books Till Damaskus and Atlantis, translated by Kelsi Vanada, she tackles some of the most wrenching events of recent decades-globalisation, the escalating war in Syria, and its ongoing aftermath and consequences. The speaker of these poems lives in a reality informed by these events and by an older European history. Taking the standpoint of listener and observer forced to confront the horrors in present tense, the poems question how we share the pain of others, and how the meeting between different experiences of trauma influences language.
