From Our Editors

As Icelandic immigrants settled the Canadian prairie toward the end of the last century, one of their most valuable possessions – an ancient and dynamic literary heritage – began to transform their experience of the new landscape. The Icelandic Voice in Canadian Letters explores a remarkable ethnic literature base in contextual terms for the first time and traces the survival of symbols deriving from Nordic saga, myth and poetry.

Editorial Reviews

"Northrop Frye has commented that a critic's literary output should be set on a par with that of a literary artist.... Dr. Neijmann's book will not make the bards shudder; it is an intelligent survey by a brilliant young scholar, which can only heighten the appreciation of Icelandic-Canadian literature to the English reading world." - Kevin Jon Johnson, Lsgberg-Heimskringla (The Icelandic Weekly Newspaper)
