Poetry

I love poetry

My research on poetry includes several studies on Norwegian and Nordic poets.

Eg vil synleggjere verden.” En studie i Paal-Helge Haugens forfatterskap. Hovedoppgave (master thesis), Universitetet i Oslo, 1982.

“Paal-Helge Haugen” in Dictionary of Literary Biography, Volume 297, Bruccoli Clark Layman 2004

My most recent article on Paal-Helge Haugen is published in Norsk avantgarde (2011).

I have edited the Festschrift Poesi på alle kantar. Cappelen Damm 2015.

Together with Sigrid Bø Grønstøl I have written Tanke til begjær. Nylesingar i nordisk lyrikk. The book includes essays on Edith Södergran, Solveig von Schoultz, Aslaug Vaa, Halldis Moren Vesaas, Inger Hagerup, Gunvor Hofmo, Marie Takvam, Eldrid Lunden, and Pia Tafdrup.
