Translated poetry can never have the same feeling as original. That's to say I really enjoyed lots of the poems but at the same time didn't enjoy some at all - it is a cut through Icelandic poetry so it's a reasonable feeling, one can be never happy with all the poetry through the history of one nation.

Yet it is a book that I am glad to have and to keep.
