The Strange Country
“A bubbly, intoxicating poetry debut!”
Carl Frode Tiller’s first volume of poetry is a book length poem about creativity, creation and survival. The poem takes every liberty, moving through time and events, almost like a snake: through the creation of the world, back and forth in human history, crossing paths with Elvis and Neanderthals, without chronological or logical limits. The countless transformations of the poem’s you come together in a cascade of images and details, historical as well as contemporary. Everything collides. The earliest hunters shoot arrows into the displays of the Louvre, and the world must constantly be re-created. Because there is a spectre haunting the world – and Europe.
