The Swedish poet Erik Lindegren’s (1910–1968) cycle of forty “broken sonnets”, The Man Without a Way, is translated into Latvian by Zigurds Elsbergs. The book is published in the Neputns bilingual velvet poetry series.
The most important and unique collection of Swedish poetry of its time, The Man Without a Way was created between November 1939 and summer of 1940. Although Lindegren had already published his debut collection, it was with The Man Without a Way that he found his surrealistic way of writing. The author himself dubbed these poems "broken sonnets".
