Fjell Hav Poesi (Mountain Sea Poetry)
by Artist book
Fjell Hav Poesi is a poetry anthology curated by Northing and Lyrikksalong and published by Kinakaal Forlag. The poetry anthology features works of seven poets from Bergen and seven from Shanghai.
The tittle Fjell Hav Poesi (Mountain Sea Poetry) was inspired by the names of the two cities: Mountain for Bergen“the city among the seven mountains” and Sea for Shanghai (Wikipedia: The two Chinese characters in the city's name are 上 (shàng/zan, "upon") and 海 (hǎi/hae, "sea"), together meaning "Upon the Sea”). All the poems were translated directly from Norwegian to Chinese and vice versa. The original texts and the translations are presented side by side, in this way the translations humbly provide reference instead of taking over.
