Saw this great article on the West Orange Patch. Here is an excerpt.
Video: Poet Tomas Tranströmer tells how his visit to NJ sparked his imagination.
The latest Nobel laureate for literature may live in Sweden, but he found inspiration right here in Essex County. You can hear poet Tomas Tranströmer tell how visiting East Orange, and looking toward New York City, spurred him to write. He tells a crowd about visiting East Orange in this video, and the mere mention of the state sparked a titter of laughter. (Might he have meant West Orange, where the view from Eagle Rock would have afforded a vista from a higher altitude? No matter, the poem begins with a description of his view from somewhere just West of the city in New Jersey.
