“Ekelöf has no desire to create some inclusive cross cultural synthesis in his poetry. He traces no historical path, no philosophical dialectic. Rather poetry is a carving process, an eroding. His work discards, it peels away layer after layer of distanciation, of cultural sediment, of simplicity, of expressive cowardice. This process is obscene, it is personal, exposed. All the more obvious to Ekelöf that this be the only way to reach the truly human, that which is universal to us all. Those that walk this path discover they are alone but watched in their solitude by others, and this is the only comfort available to them. Better this than the placebo of religion or intellectual anaemia.” -Steven Fowler
