Winner of the 1974 Nobel Prize for Literature (with fellow Swedish writer Eyvind Johnson), Harry Martinson (1904-1978) was noted for his innovative use of language combined with his keen observation of nature. He also wrote three volumes of nature essays in the 1930s. Views from a Tuft of Grass, however, was published late in his life, in 1963, and the essays of this volume reflect a maturer and cleaner style and are less philosophically dense than the earlier works.

.

Swedish author and Nobel prize winner, Martinson committed suicide in 1978, just 4 years after receiving the award. This essay was published in Swedish in 1963. This English Language edition published 2005 is not common, as the price suggests. Clean, sound, gently read. 152 pages.
