Jonas Hallgrimsson: Selected Poetry and Prose

Dick Ringler, University of Wisconsin professor of Scandinavian Studies, and Peter C. Gorman, UW Librarian, opened this site to coincide with the 190th birthday of the great Icelandic poet Jonas Hallgrimsson. This wonderful tribute contains a detailed biographical sketch, an overall analysis of Hallgrimsson's poetry, and a large bibliography of manuscripts, facsimiles, and works about the poet (mostly in Icelandic). The text and commentary section currently features 50 works (Icelandic with parallel English translations) supplemented by commentary provided by Professor Ringler. Many poems are accompanied by images of the places they describe; 21 pieces are available in audio (language varies). Scandinavian language and studies scholars are encouraged to visit this site.
