Riassunto: Two of the brightest young poets of our day follow in the footsteps of W.H. Auden and Louis MacNeice. Auden and MacNeice's Letters from Iceland was more than a brilliant and unconventional travel book; it was one of the great works of the 1930s which defined for its own and later generations the precise nature and feeling of that troubled time.With characteristic boldness, Simon Armitage and Glyn Maxwell, staunch admirers of the two older poets, set off in 1994 to discover what Iceland, with its unique geography and ancient political institutions, might have to say to us now. Their findings, delivered in an appropriate mixture of poetry and prose, reportage and imaginative elaboration, vividly reflect the concerns of our own age, and will instruct and amuse readers in equal measure.
About the Author: Simon Armitage was born in West Yorkshire and is Professor of Poetry at the University of Sheffield. A recipient of numerous prizes and awards, he has published ten collections of poetry, including Selected Poems (2001), Seeing Stars (2010), his acclaimed translation ofSir Gawain and the Green Knight (2007) and more recentlyThe Death of King Arthur (2012). A broadcaster and presenter, he also writes extensively for television and radio, is the author of two novels and the best-selling memoir All Points North. In 2010 he received the CBE for services to poetry. Glyn Maxwell (born 1962) is an English poet, screenwriter, playright and librettist. He has published nine collections of poetry and has won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, the E. M. Forster Prize and the Somerset Maugham Prize. His 2008 collection Hide Now was shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot and Forward poetry prizes. His second collaboration with the composer Elena Langer, the opera The Lion's Face, premiered in 2010. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
