Abstract [en]

Karin Nykvist, Meeting Sapfo – the now of tradition in two poetological poems by Jesper Svenbro.

The essay—"Meeting Sapfo"—shows in what ways the poetry of Jesper Svenbro invokes and manifests the presence of the earliest Western literary tradition. A central part of Svenbro's poetics is based on a method of scholarly rereading and personal, interpretative rewriting of the Greek classics. The concept of the meeting turns out to be a fundamental topos in his poetry, giving a locus and a scene for the coexistence and conWguration of different times, places, persons, texts, and cultures. Two poems are here considered in detail as poetological guidelines to Jesper Svenbro's re­generation of ancient Greek poetry: "Poikilóthronos Sapfo" and "Illumination".
