celanders became known for their literary skills
as long ago as the Middle Ages. They composed
tributes to Norwegian kings in intricate verse,
and they penned the unique sgas on vellum. In
this volume we visit the former homes of some of
Icelandïs literary giants, and museums that
commemorate them, from the medieval geothermal
pool of Snorri Sturluson at Reykholt to the
swimming pool at Gljúfrasteinn, home of Nobel
prizewinner Halldór Laxness. In the north we
visit the birthplace of Jónas Hallgrímsson, and
in Akureyri the homes of three writers : Jón
Sveinsson , Davíð Stefánsson and Matthías
Jochumsson. Gunnar Gunnarssonïs home at
Skriðuklaustur is unique and impressive , and at
Hali in the south we learn about Þórbergur
Þórðarson. But our journey begins at the
Culture House in Reykjavík, where Icelandïs
priceless medieval manuscripts are on
display-the nationïs literary heritage
