Watch Tomas Transtromer Receive the Nobel Prize for Literature

Tomorrow you can watch Tomas Transtromer receive the Nobel Prize live through live stream video. You can watch the Stockholm ceremony in the video player embedded above at 5:30 p.m. CET (or 11:30 a.m. EST) on November 7th.

Transtromer has lost the power to speak, and reports say the great poet will play the piano at ceremony instead of a speech. Today New Directions published his memoir, Memories Look at Me

Check it out: “Written a few years after Transtromer suffered a stroke that left him unable to speak, Memories Look at Me is Tomas Tranströmer’s lyrical autobiography about growing up in Sweden. His story opens with a streak of light, a comet that becomes abrilliant metaphor for “my life” as he tries to penetrate the earliest, formative memories of his past. This childhood life unfolds itself slowly in eight glistening chapters that gradually reveal the most secret of treasures: how Tranströmer discovered poetry.”
