"In Hanna Hallgrens ”Vinterresan” dealt with the passage of time by parentage"
"a Little pliktskyldigt I am listening to Schubert's Winterreise during the reading of the Hanna Hallgrens Vinterresan. The book is based on Elfride Jelineks set at theatre Galeasen in 2016, which Hallgren was and affected by the frozen and heated language. I know this because the collection kind enough to include an afterword, where Hallgren describes the process and thoughts about their poems. "
"so is she here yet more connected with the academic and interdisciplinary than she might previously have been, even if she has always been a theoretical poet. Vinterresan intends to create a meeting between the literature and the theater. But not even Hallgren seems quite sure how the meeting really takes shape, it is a ”kortpjäs in the absence of playability”."
"And in the first reading, I feel a tiredness in the face of what feels like worn-out images of flowers and physicality, as well as an uncertainty in the face of what I actually read. I think of Victor Malm text that samtidspoesin become comfortable (Express 14 jan), Rebekah Kärde picked up when she later reviewed Camilla Hammarströms The visible world: ”... a nifty and well thought out collection of poems which received an expected generous host. But it will hardly get any wider spread, even among poesiläsare, and I understand frankly why. It is so good, so lifeless, so uninspired without blemish that it only flutters past the soul and disappear into the biblioteksmagasinen” (DN 17 jan). "
"Would you not just be able to stop in Hanna Hallgrens name here instead? Well, maybe. A poet who almost always gets positive reviews, partly because reviewers in the worst cases, hardly dare to another, by the fear of being misunderstood. "
"On the other hand, I can experience the Malmi text as well hard – to Hallgren writes complex may she hear as often, and know of course about it, and it is not unfair to almost every book of poetry should result in a discussion about what the poem is and could be?"
"At the second reading opens the Vinterresan up. It is definitely not motionless, and the language is characterized precisely by the abrupt changes between cold and heat: ”The hypothermic piano. In its u002F tomb of ice”. The passage of time is treated, often in the context of parenthood, and specifically motherhood. Sometimes conjured up the feeling of an opera, where flerstämmiga toner retains the language of wildness. "
"I caught most of is the Hallgrens repeated use of the stages. As a hal extension between mother and daughter, a symbolic object that is stretched out. Vinterresan is also, again with the help of an afterword, a tribute to hemmadottern. She stays and takes care of their aging parents rather than to venture out into the world. "
"Something of this theme is to extract through one or two slow reads, and if nothing else it is enough long with a number of beautiful sentences as: ”Those who sat at table folded like napkins under the clocks”. "
