Jan Erik Vold

Jan Erik Vold (2010)

Jan Erik Vold (born 18 October 1939, Oslo) is a Norwegian lyric poet, Jazz vocal reciter, translator and author.[1] He was a core member of the so-called "Profil generation", the circle attached to the literary magazine Profil. Throughout his career as an artist, he has had the ability to reach the public, both with his poetry and his political views. He has contributed greatly to the renewal of Norwegian poetry, and created interest in lyrical poetry. Jan Erik Vold is currently living in Stockholm.

He is the son of journalist Ragnar Vold.[2]


He has won numerous awards, including the 1965 Tarjei Vesaas' debutantpris for his literary début, Mellom speil og speil; Gyldendal's Endowment in 1968; the Aschehoug Prize in 1981; the Brage Prize for Poetry in 1993 and Honorary Award in 1997; the Gyldendal Prize in 2000; the Ambolt Prize in 2004; and he was nominated for the Nordic Council's Literature Prize in 1979 and 1999. He was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Oslo in 2000.
