About the Author

Olav H Hauge (1908-1994) lived nearly all of his life in his native Ulvik in Western Norway, where he worked as a gardener. His poetry is now seen as one of the main achievements of twentieth-century Norwegian literature. Robin Fulton, Scottish poet, editor and translator, has lived in Norway since 1973. He is a notable translator of Scandinavian poetry whose versions of Swedish poets received the Artur Lundkvist Award in 1977 and Swedish Academy Awards in 1978 and 1998.
