Read full description of the books:



Inger Christensen, född 1935 i Jylland och medlem i Danska akademien, räknas som en av den samtida skandinaviska litteraturens viktigaste författare. Sedan debuten på sextiotalet har hon förutom lyrik publicerat romaner, skådespel, berättelser, essäer och översättningar. Med diktsamlingen Det, 1969, fick hon sitt stora genombrott. Alfabet kom 1981 och har blivit berömd för sin originella form och sinnligt gestaltade vision. Från den första sidans enda rad, "aprikosträden finns, aprikosträden finns", växer dikten, strukturerad efter alfabetets ordning och efter en talserie utvecklad på 1200-talet. Men att en matematisk princip styr de enskilda dikternas längd är definitivt ingenting som gör dikten svårtillgänglig eller teoretisk. Den rytmiska och klangliga skönheten och den associativa bredden i Christensens språk gör samlingen till en både enkel och rik, bejakande och varnande läsupplevelse. Den kan läsas som en sorgesång över en katastrof som växer, sprids och muterar på samma sätt som livet och språket, och en lovsång till det liv som finns, till det jordiska paradiset.
Nu föreligger den i ny svensk tolkning av Sven Christer Swahn. Han tolkade också hennes sonettsamling Fjärilsdalen (Sommerfugledalen) från 1991, som kom på svenska 1996. Sven Christer Swahn är litteraturhistoriker, expert på barockens litteratur, författare och översättare.

Read information about the author

Ebook alfabet read Online! Inger Christensen was born in Vejle, Denmark, in 1935. Initially she studied medicine, but then trained as a teacher and worked at the College of Art in Holbæck from 1963–64. Although she has also written a novel, stories, essays, radio plays, a drama and an opera libretto, Christensen is primarily known for her linguistically skilled and powerful poetry.

Christensen first became known to a wider audience with the volumes "Lys" (1962; Light) and "Græs" (1963; Grass), which are much influenced by the modernistic imagery of the 60s, and in which she is concerned with the location of the lyric "I" in relation to natural and culturally created reality. The flat, regular landscape of Denmark, its plants and animals, the beach, the sea, the snow-filled winters have determined the topography of many of her poems. Christensen has also been known internationally since the appearance of the long poem "Det" (1969; "it" 2006), a form of creative report on the merger of language and the world, which centres around the single word "it" and covers more than two hundred pages. The book clearly reveals the influence on Christensen's poetic work of such a range of authors as Lars Gustafsson, Noam Chomsky, Viggo Brøndal, R.D. Laing and Sören Kierkegaard. The analogy between the development of poetic language and the growth of life is, as in "Det", also the basic motif of the volume of poetry "Alfabet" (1981; Alphabet). In addition to the alphabet itself – which gives the book its title and provides a logical arrangement for its fourteen sections –, the structure is generated by the so-called Fibonacci series, in which every number consists of the sum of the preceding two. The composition reflects the theme exactly: while "Det" points to the story of creation and its "In the beginning was the Word", here the alphabet is a pointer to the "A and O" of the apocalypse.

The story of her life and work offers access to a poetry that is difficult and enigmatic, but simultaneously simple and elementary. Inger Christensen is one of the most reflecting, form-conscious poets of the present day, and her history of ideas also provides information on the paradox of lyric art; making legible through poetic means what must necessary remain illegible, and in this way wrestling a specific order from the universal labyrinth. Here the transitions between the poet and the essayist Christensen are fluid: just as lyrical figures and motifs give her essays a density of their own, figures of thought and configurations of ideas return as an organic component of the poems.
