For the first time this collection brings together select works in English by the major Swedish Modernist poet and critic Göran Printz-Pählson. It was Printz-Pählson who introduced poetic Modernism to Scandinavia, and his essays and poems delve deeply into English, American and continental Modernist traditions. As well as Letters of Blood, the collection includes the full text of "The Words of the Tribe", a major statement on modem poetics, in which Printz-Pählson explores the significance of primitivism in Romanticism and Modernism, and the nature of metaphor and literary materialism. The collection also includes essays on style, irony, realism, and the relationship between historical drama and historical fiction, as well as studies of American poetry. Printz-Pählson's poetry in English continues to explore these themes by different, and often surprisingly innovative, means. "Göran Printz-Pählson will go down in history as the author of some classic poems... and one of Sweden's most learned, innovative and sharp-witted literary critics." — The Independent As with Open Book publications, this entire book is available to read for free on the publisher's website.
