Overview Min verden av vrak og vindu mot nåden

Cornelius Jakhelln’s tenth poetry collection is set in Kristiansand. Or more precisely Cornelius’ Kristiansand, a place and town which slowly slides into memories and at the same time becomes someone else’s Kristiansand. The narrator’s daughter also grows up in Kristiansand, but her town is a different one. With a viewpoint anchored in a distinct and clear point in geography and history, the reader is treated to looking both backwards and forwards.

With an open and curious mind, Jakhelln questions what it means to be a human in history, where we come from and where we are going? Or as the subtitle puts it: “Poems migrated from the tree of life”.
