The Boat in the Evening is the last book by the acclaimed Norwegian writer Tarjei Vesaas. On its publication in Scandinavia it was quickly acclaimed as the culmination of Vesaas's work, and placed its author for the third time among the finalists for the Nobel Prize. A crane colony arrives at its breeding ground to play out a delicately drama that ends with the rarelyobserved ceremony of the ritual dance. All is observed by a transfixed child who has frozen into his background and become a piece of nature himself, ?a pale tussock in a windcheater". In The Boat in the Evening the author

Palais de glace by Tarjei Vesaas ( Book )
11 editions published between 1968 and 1997 in French and English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Les poètes, les enfants, les simples d'esprit ont reçu la grâce de voir au-delà des apparences, d'entendre l'inaudible et de se trouver directement au coeur de l'essentiel. Le don de Tarjei Vesaas, peut-être le plus grand écrivain norvégien de ce siècle (1897-1970), aura été de savoir abolir la dérisoire ligne de démarcation entre vie et mort, solitude et présence. Il n'y a pas d'explication toute prête à proposer de ce chef-d'oeuvre qu'est Palais de glace, tant la symbolique en est riche et les harmoniques multiples. Peut-être ne s'agit-il que d'une variation intensément poétique sur le grand secret du thème sacré : l'amour plus fort que la mort. Les deux petites filles qui s'aiment à en mourir, qui aiment l'amour plus qu'elles-mêmes réalisent leur rêve fou, l'une dans la fantastique splendeur de la cascade figée par le gel en un sublime château de glace, l'autre dans un immatériel palais du souvenir. Et l'art de Vesaas, fait d'approches timides, d'élans retenus, d'ébauches à demi suggérées édifie en un texte impeccable un mausolée d'images prestigieuses, de phrases chantantes qui atteint une perfection narrative rarement égalée dans son oeuvre
