About Aase Berg

Aase Berg was born in Sweden in 1967. She is a poet and a literary critic, and has received literary awards in Sweden and Germany. Her works have been translated into several languages. In USA she has four books published. Her early books, With Deer (1997) and Dark Matter (1999), are surrealist-influenced collections of dark, hallucinatory, apocalyptic, grotesque and gurlesque prose poetry. Later, she started writing dense, short poems with experimental language, and published The Mommy Trilogy, based on her experience of being a mother - pregnancy, the fear of loss and the happiness of kids playing. Her latest book is the most political one, even though all of her poetry collections are political in certain ways; for example, she tries to reveal the lies of the modern economy and its consequenses in everyday life through a kind of marketing vocabulary. In her latest book, she puts the words of global politics in a choir of weirdly confused and dyslectic chickens. The book also contains poems inspired by an idea of "the overwhelming indifference of nature," as nature acts objectively against narrcissistic society and religion. Through all her poetry collections there is also a strong notion of nature, and she is very interested in the perception of animals beyond the human experience. At the moment she is working on a poetry collection based on her everyday life with horses.

Aase Berg is based in the north of Sweden. She lives on a small farm in the woods.
