    This is a fantastic book about an incredibly interesting man who is arguably the best poet Iceland ever produced It is a scholarly work and not only a biography There is a great deal of poetic analysis in it

    A friend gave me this after we found out that I'll be going to Iceland this summer It's a very academic text so it can be a heavy read at times but I am really enjoying it
