Considered the father of modern Norwegian poetry, Jacobsen's work records the extraordinary changes that take place as we move from an agrarian to an industrial society. This book gathers work from all his published books.

"Jacobsen is not an idylic poet, but a voice that warns against all that which threatens human joy. The poems, translated by Grinde, are splendid."--Choice
