Neil Surkan : part six

When you require renewal, is there a particular poem or book that you return to? A particular author?

Tranströmer’s Baltics. For its meshwork of place and memory. The way a landscape/seascape might guide a form. I love comparing translations of it (I think the Samuel Charters is my favourite). It’s also the perfect length: you have to buckle in, but no stretch breaks are required. 

And it’s evocative af.
