Structure and content[ edit ] The poem consists of cantos and relates the tragedy of a large passenger spacecraft [9] originally bound for Mars with a cargo of colonists from the ravaged Earth. After an accident, the ship is ejected from the Solar System and into an existential struggle.

The style is symbolic, sweeping and innovative for its time, with creative use of neologisms to suggest the science fictional setting: We listen daily to the sonic coins provided every one of us and played through the Finger-singer worn on the left hand. We trade coins of diverse denominations: and all of them play all that they contain and though a dyma 1 scarcely weighs one grain it plays out like a cricket on each hand blanching here in this distraction-land.

In form, the poems are metrical and mostly rhymed , using both traditional and individual forms, several alluding to a wide range of Swedish and Nordic poetry, such as the Finnish Kalevala. The music was composed by Karl-Birger Blomdahl. Harley Schubert [10] in The book is not currently in print.

ANIARA POEM PDF

By now, I was a little older and more mature and could appreciate it better. El autor se esfuerza sobremanera por resultar incomprensible. This volume is the first complete English language version and received the prestigious American Scandinavian Foundation Award. To be fair though, my expectations may have been unreasonably high. For lack of other words, you know, we call it sun haze. Hats off to the translators — I can imagine the amount of research and foreign language skills needed to achieve a decent version of this for international readers. Originally bound for Mars, the craft is instead launched out of the Solar System, and into an existential struggle that lends itself more to Teilhard de Chardin or Taoism than pulp science fiction.
