"The electronic manuscript of Fairytales (1992) is a continuation of my collaboration with the translator John Irons. We began our collaboration on the work Home (1985) and have continued by working on the present manuscript.
          For me, the electronic manuscripts represent a genre that offers the reader new possibilities when it comes to reading poems.
          Throughout my writing, I have been interested in information theory, cybernetics and system theory, and the electronic manuscript adds a new dimension to my poetic writing."
