Finn Øglænd

Song of the northern dock

Beautiful collection of poems from the experienced Norwegian poet Finn Øglænd. The poems revolve around themes like existence, love, writing and the little thing in our every day that fills our lives with meaning. Øglænd is capable of writing about these big themes without being too weighted by their severity. Song of the northern dock also has a humorous side to it, with poems like «I pee completely unironically».
