Norðdahl shines in the essay form

The amazing Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl has just published (in english) a collection of essays and columns about poetry, literature, literary politics, called 'Booby, Be Quiet!' (a very learnéd reference to Auden's translation of the Eddas) with poEsia.

The book is currently available on the poEsia website via: but it can also be downloaded as a pdf for free, though a donation is appreciated. It’s a fascinating collection of criticism from one of Europe’s most exciting poets.
