Joining Life and Poetry

Vesaas, Tarjei and Halldis Moren: Liv og dikt i lag

A match for this poetry anthology is yet to be seen. We follow the development in life and poetry from the time Halldis Moren and Tarjei Vesaas meet and create their home in Midtbø in Vinje. The book is built over the lifetime that the two poets share and we get a good insight into their picture of the world, in their opinions on reality, art and the human being. The poems are arranged with pieces of prose where the authors comment their own or each other’s work. Their son Olav ties it all up with enlightening comments. All in all, the poems shed light on each other and appear in a new way.
