"Joar Tiberg read Sigmund Løvåsens collection of poems With øksene dei haustar inn"
"the POETRY of Sigmund Løvåsens (b 1977) an edition With øksene dei haustar inn (Intercourse) is uplifting reading."
"Not so that its themes (agriculture and forestry, småbruksnedläggning, kemikaliedöd, vardagsornitologi) is something to draw on the mouth, but maybe it's the language, the gravity, the patoset!"
"”Hendene his sprekker fylte with oil, kvae,u002F sauemøkk og blodu002F So mange gonger panning in fostervatnu002F Hendene heldt small livlause lam,u002F daska life in deiu002F Hendene heldt meg da ec came out of the mammau002F Dei arr etter øks, tail og motorsag.”"
"nDikterna in the collection – completely oironiskt is adorned with the menfolk put skyddsbyxa, ditto helmet and with the chainsaw in the waist – seems to completely miss the need to look to the present day aesthetic of fashion."
"the Poems, for me, also down to the regions and to the elements in a way I haven't experienced since I first encountered the ”Hardangerviddas Homer”, Olav H Hauges everyday poetry. "
"Løvåsens relation to the earth and the forest goes down in generations, you sense, but it is not based in any fädernegård with the pedigree, no, ”grandma and grandpa brente seg veg gjennom Finnish and Swedish forests”."
"nAlltså: a nomadic peasant culture! It can stand as a kind of hallmark for this poem, as both the dig, and journey would get one through their sorrowful subjects. "
"”Ein høstdag scream it from the myreneu002F It you tranene that collects segu002F Takes the lette step og strekker dei lange halsane against himmelenu002F Syng on brente villages og utmarga born”"
