Réttu mér norðurljósin!


Ég ætla að dansa við unglinginn


sem heldur á stjörnunum.


 


V ið roðflettum myrkrið


og afhausum eymdina.


 


Þetta er ljóðið Herhvöt úr norðri og það er á margan hátt viðeigandi að hefja þessa ritsmíð á því, ekki bara af því að ljóðið lýsi því sem við e...

“Alting havde ændret sig undtagen verden, som aldrig blev den samme”
Einar Már Gudmundsson

“Naravno, ja razumem stvarnost isto toliko slabo koliko i ona mene razume. U tom pogledu smo kvit. Meni stvarnost, međutim,ne duguje objašnjenje, a ja joj, evo, odužujem svoje.
Bilo bi, u svakom slučaju,lepo kada bih mogao da odgovorim kao nemački filozof Hegel kada je neko primetio da njegova učenja nisu u skladu sa činjenicama: ‘ Tim gore po činjenice.’
Tako mogu da pišu pesnici.
Tako mogu da govore filozofi.
Ali mi,koje šalju u ludnice i smeštaju u kojekakve ustanove, mi nemamo odgovor kad nam se ideje ne podudaraju sa stvarnošću, jer su u našem svetu drugi u pravu i drugi znaju kada neko nije.”
Einar Már Guðmundsson, Angels of the Universe

“Ragnar est communiste et ne s'en cache pas: «soit on est communiste, soit on est con.»”
