Place of Birth Eidsberg
Nationality Norway
Cecilie Løveid is a Norwegian novelist, poet, playwright, and writer of children's books. She was born in Mysen. She made her literary debut in 1972, with the novel Most. She received the Gyldendal Prize in 2001. Løveid's first play was the one-act Tingene, tingene, published in the literary magazine Vinduet in 1976. In total she has written about thirty plays, librettos or other texts for radio or stage performance. In 2013 the poem "Punishment" was printed in Aftenposten, as "This Week's Poem", on April 8. In an interview with the newspaper she said that the poem is about Breivik, and that she has no opinion about the verdict of his trial—because that is outside the scope of the poem. The poem starts with "I am glad that he got the punishment that he got. As [it is] known, he will be led by the hand, from grave to grave." It ends with "Therefore, and even if he does all of this, it will be calm/quiet."
