Synopsis : The painting Vase with Flowers by the Dutch artist Jan van Huysum was in a private collection just outside Christiania (now Oslo) when the Norwegian firebrand and poet Henrik Wergeland saw it early in 1840. It inspired him to write his best-known work, an extraordinary tour-de-force of Nordic Romanticism. The poem adopts a free attitude towards historical events and people, refers to fictitious works of art by real painters, and zigzags between verse and prose in a glorious rejection of conventional literary form. It represents the triumph of Romanticism, its main theme the terrible price of beauty, the high existential cost of art. Henrik Wergeland (1808-45) is Norway's greatest Romantic poet, idolized as a national figure who was deeply involved in the emergence of Norway into independence from Danish rule.
About the Author: Henrik Wergeland (1808-45) is Norway's greatest romantic poet, author of visionary poems, satires, national anthems, sea shanties, prose pieces and political treatises. He is idolised as a national figure who was deeply involved in the emergence of Norway into independence after 400 years of Danish rule. This new translation of one of his greatest works has been commissioned to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth.
