TRANSLATOR BIO: Both Gegnir and Hjartar indicate that the translator was Sigurður Júlíus Jóhannesson 1868-1956. He was known in his circle as "S. J.", and was a prominent Icelandic-Canadian writer, poet and editor, who edited the Icelandic-Canadian newspaper Logberg for a short while but resigned because of his opposition to Canadian participation in World War I. He also edited 5 other Icelandic-Canadian periodicals (see Hjartar, p. 42). Prof. Richard Beck also applaudes him as a fine poet, editor and an unusualy fine translator - see Beck's History of Icelandic Poets, pp. 221 - 224. Referenced in Hjartar, p. 11.
