About this Item

DESCRIPTION : 136 pages; 17 cm. CONDITION : Near Fine in recased half leather and pepbbled black cloth. CONTENT/Efni:: Mótþróinn gegn rannsókn dularfullra fyrirbrigða. Raymond, 1-2. SUBJECTS: Icelandic Literature/Íslenskar bókmenntir; Sálarrannsóknir: Spíritismi; Framhaldslíf. AUTHOR BIO: The author, Einar Kvaran, a leading Icelandic novelist, playwright and critic, emigrated to Canada in the 1880s, where he edited the pivotal Icelandic-Canadian newspaper Logberg and took a prominent role in Icelandic-Canadian community and political affairs; in 1891 he was selected President of the Icelandic Liberal Association of Manitoba. He returned to Iceland about 1895, after a ten year residency in Canada (Kristjanson). His early works were writen under his previous name, Einar Hjörleifsson; later he was known as Einar Hjörleifsson Kvaran, as a consequence of which both names are found in bibliopgraphies, though the library database in Iceland uses Kvaran. Stefan Einarson, in his History of Icelandic Prose Writers (Cornell University Press, p. 237) states that "Einar H. Kvaran, in America [read Canada] 1885-95 wrote his first masterpiece, Vonir (1890) in Winnipeg over a purely Icelandic-American [read Canadian] motif". Bookseller Inventory # 34762
