Winner of the 2006 Nordic Council's Literature Prize, Swedish writer G#65533;ran Sonnevi is undoubtedly one of the most important poets working today. In Mozart's Third Brain , his thirteenth book of verse, he attempts "a commentary on everything" -- politics, current events, mathematics, love, ethics, music, philosophy, nature. Through the impeccable skill of award-winning translator Rika Lesser, Sonnevi's long-form poem comes to life in English with the full force of its loose, fractured, and radiating intensity.


A poetic tour de force that darts about dynamically and imaginatively, Mozart's Third Brain weaves an elaborate web of associations as the poet tries to integrate his private consciousness with the world around him. Through Lesser's translation and preface, and an enlightening foreword by Rosanna Warren, readers of English will finally gain access to this masterpiece.
