Item description for Nineteen Articles and Speeches (None) by Finnbogi Gudmundsson...
As born out by the list of contents of this book the author is mainly interested in old Icelandic literature, the works of Snorri Sturluson and Orkneyinga Saga, in particular, as well as in Icelandic emigrants to North America and their attitude towards Iceland with special emphasis on the poet Stephan G. Stephansson as a key person in that respect. The articles on the National Library of Iceland and remarks on the role of the book in Iceland are of course in order for the National Librarian and the articles on Icelandic identity and family reunions show the author's interest in Icelandic genealogy, a field he has dealt with to some extent at his leisure.
