I picked this book up when I was on vacation in Reykjavik. I don't read too much poetry anymore, but I do love epics and mythology, so this was a good fit for me.
There was one section that struck me especially:
The sun in the depths
lit a glitter
in the ripples

my eyes
in the water

and the chain
round my neck

father's love in each link

The edition I have has the original Icelandic along with the English translation, which is very cool to me despite the fact I can't read the original.
