“You came to it very slowly yet you achieved it as your whole life deserved it nonetheless than the poetry you reached”, we also whisper the same with Diana Hambardzumyan.  I felt the rhythm of music, the light of spirituality and the touch of images sparkle in the works of Tomas Transtromer when I went through them. In “The Half Finished Heaven” Transtromer makes life and death sit face to face and uplifts our spirit to the spiritual horizon. Windows and stones(1972), Baltics(1975), The Half Finished Heaven(2001),The Great Enigma(2004), For the Living and the Dead(2005),The Deleted World(2006),The Sorrow Gondola(2010) are the works of Transtromer which have made him to sit at  the zenith of  fame. The silent nature of Sweden has inspired his imagination. Poet Sachidanandan has translated some of his works into Malayalam. Ayyappapanikkar and Balachandran Chullikkad have also introduced Transtromer to the people of Kerala. The works of Transtromer have been translated into more than sixty languages of the world. He began to write poems first at the age of thirteen when he was studying at Sodra Latin School. In 1954, when he was 23 his first collection 17 Dikter was released in Swedish language, including seventeen of his first poems. Transtromer is a must read poet of our generation.
