Gunnar Ekelöf
Portrait of Gunnar Ekelöf

Gunnar Ekelöf (1907–1967) is without doubt Sweden’s finest poet of the twentieth century, though he never felt at home in his native Sweden or in France, Greece, and the Middle East, where he also lived. His first collection, Late on the Earth, was published in 1932, but it is in his collection Ferrysong, written during World War II, that one finds the essential Ekelöf, the learned and the wise, the simple and clever, who became the model poet for later generations.
