PoemsBook - 1985
Poetry. Rolf Jacobsen is a poet of silence and light. Born in 1907, he is considered Norway's first modern poet and its greatest living poet. Jacobsen sees the secret connection between things. With a penetrating vision, he writes of the city and machines as perhaps no-one else, and in other poems he looks deep into nature, seeing the snail in the grass who wanders on a kiss. This collection includes a selection of poems from various periods of Jacobsen's work plus an introduction and an interview with him. The translator, Olav Grinde, is a Norwegian writer and artist.
