    I just finished reading the Bly-Transtromer letters. I found them thoroughly engrossing, the wonderful warm friendship between the two men, their sweet goofy humor, also the world poltical background of the times, and especially the detailed discussions as they were translating each other's poems, the careful attention to the nuances and undercurrents of words.
