  • Håkan Sandell was born in 1962 in Malmö, in southern Sweden, but has lived abroad most of his adult life, in Denmark, Ireland, and Norway. He debuted at the age of 19, and has since published eighteen collections or pamphlets of poetry, most recently Ode till Demiurgen (Ode to the Demiurge, 2013). He is also a translator and critic, and a cofounder of the artistic movement known as Retrogardism. He has received several major Swedish awards for his poetry and essays, and selections of his poetry have appeared in German and Hungarian.

    Praise for Håkan Sandell 'He is a master fencer. With swift moves, and a clear mind. He is master director of photography, beautifully controlling our perception. This is Haakan Sandell.'
