Olav H. Hauge

During a writing career that spanned nearly fifty years, Olav Hauge earned recognition as "one of the greatest poets in Norwegian literature" (Contemporary Authors) and a major figure of twentieth-century European poetry.

Sage and plainspoken--and bearing a resemblance to Chinese poetry--Hauge's compact, classically restrained poems are rooted in his training as a farmer and an orchardist, his deep reading in world literatures, and a lifetime of careful attention to the beauties and rigors of the western Norwegian fjord region. His spare imagery and unpretentious tone range from bleak to unabashedly joyous--an intricate interplay between head, heart, and hand.

This generous bilingual edition--introduced by Robert Bly, and translated by Bly and Robert Hedin--includes poems from Hauge's seven books, as well as a gathering of his never-before-translated last works.
