Poetry Book Society selects David McDuff’s translation of Tua Forsström

The Poetry Book Society has chosen SELTA member David McDuff’s translation of Finland-Swedish poet Tua Forsström’s poems as part of its Winter Selection to be sent out to its members this November.

Tua Forsström’s I walked on into the forest: poems for a little girl, translated by David McDuff, is the Poetry Book Society’s Translation Choice for Winter 2021.

“Her poetry draws its sonorous and plangent music from the landscapes of Finland, seeking harmony between the troubled human heart and the threatened natural world,” the Poetry Book Society.

Subscribers will receive the book as part of their poetry bundle this November. Read more about the author at the publisher’s website, Bloodaxe Books here.
