Edith Södergran (1892-1923) was a Finland-Swedish poet credited with introducing modernist poetry to Swedish-language literature. Södergran’s poems reject previous lyrical forms and depict a feminine mode of embodiment that today might be recognized as genderqueer. Her poetry was largely ridiculed during her lifetime and she died of chronic tuberculosis at age 31 after receiving little recognition. However, her impact on Swedish poetry since has been monumental, and today she is remembered as one of the great modern poets of Scandinavian literature.
