Haiku i SvDs Under strecket!

Skärmavbild 2017-04-24 kl. 19.36.33

I dag publicerades helt oväntat en artikel av Niklas Schiöler i Svenska Dagbladets “Under strecket”. Det var en essä om Lars Englund som på 1940-talet utvecklade en egen stil av kortpoesi som påminner om haiku, eller kanske ännu mer om tanka. Smickrande nog nämndes Ola Lindberg och jag själv som “nutida seriösa och drivna haikudiktare”, vilket jag uppskattade enormt mycket, eftersom formen extremt sällan skrivs om i dagspress, och ännu mer sällan nämner nu-levande poeter. Niklas Schiöler är författare till antologin Svensk poesi som kom ut på Albert Bonniers förlag förra året.

Today an article was published by Niklas Schiöler in the Swedish national paper Svenska Dagbladet. It was an essay on Lars Englund, who in the 1940s developed his own style of short poetry, which resembled haiku/tanka. In the article, Ola Lindberg and myself were mentioned as examples of contemporary Swedish haiku poets, which I for one much appreciated, as the form extremely rarely is written about in the national press here and even more rarely mentions contemporary poets. Niklas Schiöler is the author of the anthology Swedish poetry, which was published by Albert Bonniers Förlag last year.
