Ep 33 — Thomas Løland on Composing Verses in Rhyme, Metric, and with Storytelling to Revive Classical Poetry
The Norwegian author Thomas Løland is a promising classical poet who writes epic stories in verse. In the 2021 edition of Sivilisasjonen’s Poetry Competition, he got 2nd place with his poem “The White Doe” which was inspired by a painting by Luke Hillestad:
Løland touches on why it is important to return to masculine poetry, the strengths of the sonnet, rhyme and the significance of constrained writing, as well as Sonatorrek by Egil Skallagrimsson and skaldic poetry.
⭐ Watch the BONUS-material where Løland and Tuv continue their conversation, touching on subjects such as Nietzsche’s idea of “Rausch”, Symbolism in “The White Doe”, and the Value of Form and Rules:
The conversation was produced by Bork S. Nerdrum, with assistance from Aftur Nerdrum.
The centerpiece was a reproduction of Luke Hillestad’s painting called “Stag”.
