Commemorative Issue: Halldis Moren Vesaas Centenary

Portrait and text from

Halldis Moren Vesaas (1907-95) is regarded as one of Norway's most prominent female lyric poets. A stamp has been issued to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of her birth. Her husband, the poet Tarjei Vesaas, was honoured in the same way in 1997. A husband and wife on separate stamps is not an everyday occurrence!

She was born and grew up in Trysil in Hedmark. Her father was a farmer, and her early home in a farming community gave her a positive approach to life that she never lost. Literature also had an important place in her life. At the age of nine, she was already writing stories for a children's magazine. She married Tarjei Vesaas in 1934 and they made their home at Midtbo Farm in Vinje (Telemark). Marriage provided inspiration for her poetry. She and -Tarjei felt a strong and close attachment for each other, but there were also times when they preferred to be apart.
