A blog mainly about literature and life in the Nordic countries.
I don't know whether it's just me, but I only got the introduction and the Icelandic. There was, presumably, an English translation, but the last minute of this recording was blank.Nevertheless, Kristný has a clear voice, which is good for a poet. Her train of thought from an annoying junkie neighbour to an 80-year-old Anne Frank is an intriguing one. There was a mock-up picture in one of the dailies recently of what she would have looked like, had she survived till today.
I thought the blank conclusion of the recording was deliberate, but I may be wrong.
It may be a copyright matter. I cannot imagine that one whole minute of silence would have been invented by anyone but John Cage.
Maybe, though with the younger generation these days all things are possible. :-)
