The short formulation of the Swedish Academy when it announced the award of the Nobel Prize to Tomas Tranströmer has been analysed with Perspective Text Analysis (PTA/ Vertex), which is founded on the Agent-action-Objective [AaO] model. Through the mirroring technique, the Intention, governed by the [A] component, was extracted from the Orientation, governed by the [O] component. This measure showed that the most essential concept in the Academy text was found to be Boundary. Based on this result, four poems by Tranströmer were studied, two from early decades of his career and two from later decades, with the aim to examine the relevance of the Boundary concept in his poetry. The study describes interrelated structures of energy flows and fusions, which are generating internal landscapes, whose conceptual boundaries are not apparent on the surface of a poetic text. These landscapes have been represented topologically. The study shows that the two poems written at the beginning and end of the studied period indicate that an inclination takes place, which means high structural density, while the two poems produced in the middle of the period show lower structural density. However, contrary to the first poem, the Intention of the last poem is generating a higher transformation value than the Orientation, although its density is lower. Thus, the author expresses his inner images more effectively towards the end of his career than in the beginning.
