“Én Vej [Picture World] is extraordinary: not only a stylistically refined and intellectually challenging book of poems, but a work of great beauty.” — Peter Stein Larsen, Kristeligt Dagblad
“Niels Frank’s symphonic Picture World is a vivid, worldly, spellbindingly sustained aria of anguished yet eager perception—up-to-the-minute, bleakly witty, multichromatic, moving in every sense of the word. Roger Greenwald’s brisk translation is an uncanny act of poetic forgery: the language feels and sounds strikingly original.” — Stephen Kessler
“’I’d very much like to show you a world,’ Frank writes—and the freewheeling Danish poet does just that, in this captivating book-length poem that’s by turns funny and sad, pensive and provocative.” — Barbara Carey, The Toronto Star
Niels Frank (born 1963) published his first book in 1985. He has published six books of poems, two of essays, two that mix genres, a collection of narratives about well-known artists (and one anonymous forger), and a volume of photos. He has also translated poetry into Danish (notably that of John Ashbery and Anne Carson).
Roger Greenwald has won the CBC Literary Award twice (for poetry and travel literature). His books include Connecting Flight (poems); Through Naked Branches: Selected Poems of Tarjei Vesaas; and North in the World: Selected Poems of Rolf Jacobsen, winner of the Lewis Galantière Award.
