Biography

Östen Sjöstrand gave his introductory speech in the Swedish Academy about the Swedish writer Pär Lagerkvist, who preceded him at the same chair. As a poet he debuted in 1949 with Unio, which was marked by the post-war agony of the Swedish 1940s poetry. He was above all inspired of French poetry.
