Helena Boberg (b. 1974) is from Stockholm, Sweden. Her books include Repuls (Repulsion, 2011) and Sinnesvåld (Sense Violence, 2013). A sometime member of the Surrealist Group of Stockholm, Boberg draws on psychoanalytic, surreal, and feminist discourses in her poetry. She also participates in the feminist-literary project Poetry and Equality in Sweden and the Middle East, which over the past three years have involved women writers from Sweden, Palestine, Iran, and Iraq in workshops to facilitate translating and networking among female poets, based on sharing experiences with literary practices and living conditions. Sense Violence was published in the US by Black Ocean in 2020 (trans. Johannes Göransson).
