Marginalia to Harriet Löwenhjelm (1887-1917). Poems and Epistles
The poet and artist Harriet Augusta Dorothea Löwenhjelm died of tuberculosis at the age of 31, in a sanatorium by the shores of Lake Sommen in Sweden. Löwenhjelm left behind a rich trove of unpublished poems, drawings, diary entries and more.
Rune Christiansen’s “marginalia” to the artist are a tribute and an elegy. They also form a conversation, about nature, the presence of death, and the comforting power of poetry and faith, through which Löwenhjelm’s interrupted work is given new life.
