Queen's Gate is the woman's way into the world. "From water you have come," writes Pia Tafdrup, creating her own myth through a sequence of highly
sensual poems centred on water in all its forms.

Queen's Gate is a composite picture of the basic elements of the life-cycle of nature and man, mirrored through a conceptual world that takes the body as its axis, in poetic language of great visual and emotional power. The poems are written from a female point of view, but reflect the whole story of human life and suffering.

Pia Tafdrup is one of Denmark's leading poets, and won the 1999 Nordic
Council Literature Prize - Scandinavia's most prestigious literary award - for this book.
