Anna Enquist: Form and Vision; Analysis and Feeling.
(Rita Ingram Givens) The Low Countries - 2004, № 12, pp. 148-157
During the last twelve years Anna Enquist has published a substantial body of literary work. She is a writer whose qualities and talents offer not only readability, but also lasting artistic integrity. Her art is about feelings both tragic and life-affirming – and she understands the many shades of grief and joy, love and hate. Against the tragic and disturbing elements in the lives of Enquist's fictionalised world, there remains a powerful excitement about the complexity of being human, loving, creating, nurturing and enjoying art, music, and life. Hard-won compassion is the vision that prevails. (with two extracts and three poems in translation)
