“The Indoors is Endless,” by Tomas Tranströmer

October 6, 2011

This poem walks around among grandiose houses where only every second column bears weight.

“The Indoors is Endless” is by Tomas Tranströmer who just won the Nobel Prize in Literature. This version was translated by Robin Fulton. It is collected in Tranströmer’s New Collected Poems (Bloodaxe, 1997), and I read it from its page on poetryfoundation.org.
