Parasitsonetterne – Book cover, Gyldendal

Martin Andersen’s Parasitsonetterne (“The Parasitic Sonnets”) derives its name from the book’s parasitic relationship to one of modern Danish poetry’s seminal works, Inger Christensen’s Sommerfugledalen – et requiem (“Butterfly Valley: A Requiem”), that it explores in various ways, among them computational ways of generating poetry.

The dust jacket (above) features a butterfly with a machine-like attachment – an illustration of the book as a technical parasite on Butterfly Valley. The hard cover underneath (below) shows one of the book’s many diagrams, coloured as the dust cover’s butterfly.

Published by Gyldendal, 2017. Edited by Janne Breinholt Bak.
