Poetry. "The whole object of travel is not to set foot on a foreign land," wrote G.K. Chesterton, "it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land." Such is the effect, too, of reading THE OTHER SIDE OF LANDSCAPE. Working simultaneously under the influence of foreign poetries and thousand-year-old native traditions, this inspired collection explores the poets' "Electrical I"--as editors Stochholm and Sumari--that gives the reader a sense of wonder for the familiar, an "electrical eye." THE OTHER SIDE OF LANDSCAPE is a collection of seventeen Nordic poets as influenced by modern and post-modern techniques as by pan-Scandinavian mythology. It represents the largest and most comprehensive collection ofmodern Nordic poets ever for an American audience.
