Inside Voices, Outside Light

by Sigurdur Pálsson

Bilingual English / Icelandic edition

Translated and introduced by Martin Regal

Part of our Arc Translations series edited by Jean Boase-Beier

This book presents poems from Pálsson's ten collections written between 1980-2008. Swirling with imagery, they reveal a poet committed to unearthing the joy of living connected to the natural world. For Pálsson, poetry contains such energy and force to upset chronology, ideas run amok, views close and open. Space is compressed so the various fabrics of the world are folded into each other, creating a causal layering of the natural and man-made. This is a thrilling sweep across this poet's work.
