The Stones Speak is Thórbergur ThórdarsonÉs
elegiac portrayal of his childhood and youth on
the farm of Hali in Suðursveit, an isolated
rural area of southeastern Iceland, in the late
19th century. It reveals his reverence for the
beauty of the Suðursveit countryside and his
enduring love of his family and neighbours and
their language, history and culture. It is a
sometimes witty and funny, sometimes wry and
sad, sometimes contemplative and mystical, but
always affectionate portrait of a time, a place
and a people, all of which have long since
passed away. The Stones Speak is not only an
enchanting work of art, but also a vitally
important witness to the way of life on an
Icelandic turf farmstead in the 1890s.
