A portrait of Pia Juul's writing

This book is about a significant – and ambiguous – poet; one should not feel safe when speaking about Pia Juul's authorship, and therefore it is also in good agreement with the authorship that the book sheds light on it from so many angles. It contains a total of 26 contributions, which together form a suitable kaleidoscope.

On her death in 2020, Pia Juul left behind a large and superb authorship quite without equal, which was interrupted in the middle of the process. With this book, we have wanted not only to commemorate her person, but also and not least with the help of many good forces to cross through the authorship - lengthwise and crosswise - to inspire contemporary and future readers to get on board the books and read or reread them with new eyes – or simply read them for the first time, but not the last time.
