Lennart Sjögren

Lennart Sjögren was born in the village of Böda on the Swedish island of Öland in the Baltic and to this very day lives on the former farm of his parents, down by the shore. During the 1950s, he studied for a while at the Gothenburg Academy of Art, where he met his wife, the artist Eva Forsberg, who has illustrated much of his work. In 1959, he made his debut as a poet. Apart from poetry, Sjögren has also written short stories. Although he has never regarded himself as a real artist, Sjögren nevertheless has a typical painter’s eye. His poems are full of compact, ‘seen’ images.
