Few people can put intense, existential experiences into words in the way Casper André Lugg does. Nymånedagene is a beautiful collection of poems which show us how renouncing ones, self and all practical considerations leads us nearer to the heart of life.
‘My own criteria in assessing the quality of poetry are the capacity to create images in combination with philosophical and perceptive depth and musicality. In my opinion Lugg has all of these. He has the seed for something really big.' This is what one of our leading poets, Steinar Opstad, says about Casper André Lugg. Few writers succeed as Casper André Lugg does in putting acute, existential experiences into words. Casper André Lugg made his debut with Lite rekviem in 2011, followed last year by the collection Dagene er som gress. With Nymånedagene Casper completes what can now be called a trilogy. Casper has been named as one of the young lyricists to look out for in future. He won the Booksellers' Author Stipend in 2016.
'Lugg writes clean-cut poems with clear diction […] He writes very good pictures.'
'A thought or experience which can seem obvious enough, but which in Lugg’s hands […] is expressed in poetry which spell-binds me in its elegant simplicity.
