This ambitious work by Þórður Helgason brings the reader the history of folk poets in Iceland. These poets were often placed or regarded as second class compared to the educated, philosophical and generally more important "academic" authors. Here Þórður Helgason sheds an important light on a particular subject in the history of Icelandic literature.
