As you've probably heard by now, this year's Nobel Prize in Literature went to the Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer. I'm pretty happy about this, and I went out this weekend and bought a set of his collected poems that I can hopefully find time to read soon. Tranströmer writes quite a bit about music, and I think his poem "Allegro" might be one of the best music poems I've ever read. It's wonderful. Enjoy!
