It raises the question of how his poetry is actually perceived in continents predominated by other literary preferences. It also gives insight to the literal appearance of his poetry in essentially different languages. TRANSTR MER INTERNATIONAL features a seminar of world poets, placing his poetry in context by relating to their countries of origin: Columbia, Iran and Bangladesh. And a select working group has translated sample poems of Transtr mer into several world languages, printed alongside the Swedish originals. Most translations are done exclusively for this anthology, and in addition to some new English versions, there are poems in Arabic, Bengali, Farsi, Japanese, Romani, Russian, North Sami, Somali and Spanish.
All poems of Tomas Transtr mer are also featured in original version. Poems and seminar text by Kristian Carlsson, ngela Garc a, Azita Ghahreman, and Anisur Rahman.
