The year's first Nordlit-volume consists of five unrelated articles. Anne Hemkendreis writes about Thule-stamps that circulated between Greenland and Denmark in the 1930s, Per Esben Myren-Svelstad's article is about the Norwegian author Åsmund Sveen's role as both poet and editor before and during World War II, while Ruben Moi has read the Irish poet Paul Muldoon's lyrical «translation» of the famous Celtic poem «Pangur Bán». Also, Benedikt Jager discusses the influence of drugs in various short stories and novels by the Norwegian author Ingvar Ambjørnsen, and Rikke Andersen Kraglund reads Karl Ove Knausgård's novel The Morning Star as an apocalyptic science fiction-novel. Enjoy the articles!
Nordlit will be back with a special issue in the fall of 2022.
