Art Garfunkel famously keeps track of the books he has read since 1968. As of writing this, the count is 1327 (he does not add a review). I thought I could do something similar but I am adding short reviews of books as I read them, and I rake my brain over what I read over the last decades. This is, evidently, a work-in-progress: there are 566 reviews so far. Titles marked with a * are particular favorites.

Inger Christensen: Digte (Det, Alfabet, Sommefugledalen) *

From a ‘collected poems’, the three central collections Ms Christensen published: Det (‘It’), Alfabet, and Sommerfugledalen (‘The Butterfly Valley’) are, hands down, the pinnacle of Danish poetry, and should have made her a Nobel prize winner. Alas, that never happened.
