Poetry Museum

December 16, 2015

"Poetry Museum?" I hear you asking: "what is that?"

I have to admit that I am not sure that 'museum' is the right translation. More a cross between a collection, history corner, chronicle and performance space. Thorarinn 'Toti' Hannesson, a long time teacher, decided to start his own institute devoted to Icelandic poetry in Siglufjordur. Now he caters to school visits, artists, and the general public, running performances every afternoon at 4pm in the summer and as need be at other times.

Toti treated us to some reading of classical and contemporary Icelandic poetry when we were there. Click on the link to see and hear it for yourself.
