Siv Cedering, 1939 - 2007



I recently found out that one of my favorite poets from the 1980s, Siv Cedering died in November from pancreatic cancer. I saw her read once & took some photos of her at the riverrun bookstore in Hastings-on-Hudson in March 1986 (one of my very earliest photos of a poet). What I liked about her work was its "thingness." Check out her poem "Hands" on http://poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/15716.

This is the notice on www.cedering.com:
Siv Cedering was the author of eighteen books plus four books of translations, she also was an exhibiting sculptor and painter, a book illustrator, and a writer of songs and TV programs for children. She appeared in Harper's, Science, Ms., The New Republic, Paris Review, Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens Nyheter, Partisan Review, Georgia Review, BLM, etc., and in approximately 200 anthologies and textbooks. She received major awards for fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and visual art. Born by the Arctic Circle in Sweden, she lived with her husband Hans Van de Bovenkamp at Twin Oaks Farm and Sculpture Garden in Sagaponack, New York. Sadly, Siv Cedering passed away at her home on November 17, 2007. She will be greatly missed by many.

Thank you for this tribute. Siv was a good friend of ours since we lived in her carriage house and her grand sphere of celebration and spiritualty for 3 years, in Harrison NY in the 1970s.

Our lives are significantly different for her instructive embracing of the moment and of all the beings within reach!
