"Magnus Ringgren if the first music akademiledamoten of 210 years."
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"After the Finnish-Russian war of 1809 was closed in finland-Swedish writers out there from the Swedish Academy. It was painful because Finland had been an integral part of Sweden since the middle ages. The Swedish author was, which Tegnér wrote, had to ”in the border to Sweden to conquer Finland again'."
"the Romantics were ready to fill the void. And since then, it has, at times, gloriösa finland-Swedish literature remained outside the Academy."
"Until now. It is with great pleasure that I receive the news that Tua Forsström has been elected to the Swedish Academy as the successor to Katarina Frostenson. If I'm going to bleed my personal idiosynkrasier so I can say that is a pretty good poet succeeded by a more urgent and better. But we forget it."
"the Swedish position in Finland is, if not directly threatened, so is quite fragile. Swedish-speaking finns we see everywhere in the american public sphere. They are not refugees, but on the western side of the gulf of bothnia there is a larger labour market and a further affronted. Tua Forsström, 71 years old, has been left at home. She manages in her quiet way the modernist tradition from Södergran, Björling and Diktonius."
"the Books are thin. She made her debut in 1972 with en dikt om kärlek och annat. Latest book came in the fall, the Notes, which is about a grandson's tragic death. She has also worked together with the composer. In the almost asleep Swedish radioteatern she has done two remarkable small pieces together with akademiledamoten Torgny Lindgren."
"Tua forsström's reputation among poesiläsare and critics are very good-also in Sweden. With a few exceptions, her books come in delupplagor at the Swedish publishing house."
"I open the Yellow from 1979, perhaps the thinnest of the book: ”You have to be patient and nervous u002F You have to be burning and careful u002F You must believe that you are something”. See where a good program is for the anniversary!"
