This title is a Poetry Book Society recommended translation.
In this generous selection of nearly half of Hauge's poetic work, Robin Fulton displays the range, variety and distinctive qualities of his poetry.
Though deeply rooted in the West Norwegian landscape which he evokes so memorably, Hauge's poetry has a kinship in background and temperament with that of Robert Frost, while also sharing the wry humour and cool economy of William Carlos Williams and Brecht, whom he translated.
Often epigrammatic, yet lyrical in impulse, his poems have a serenity which makes them unusually rewarding.
