Customer Review

on September 7, 1999
After more than twenty years of searching for an English translation of this poem, I finally have had the great fortune to obtain a copy!
This is the 24-year story of how the 8,000 inhabitants of a doomed 'space ark' try to cope with their hopeless situation. It is a dark review of the human condition, sometimes difficult, often beautiful.
The introduction and translator's notes are a must-read. Strangely, there is no mention at all of the 'modern' opera by Karl-Birger Blohmdahl (the only true 'space opera'?) which is how most non-Swedes have been introduced to Aniara for many decades.
The Aniara Suite was featured as side 2 of a very rare release of the "2001..." soundtrack years ago. If still available, the 1985 Caprice 2-CD set (CAP 22016 1-2) is an excellent companion to this book.
