The concept of modernism by Ástráður Eysteinsson ( Book )
16 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Astradur Eysteinsson maintains that the concept of modernism does not emerge directly from the literature it subsumes, but is in fact a product of critical practices relating to nontraditional literature. Intervening in these practices, and correlating them with modernist works and with modern literary theory, Eysteinsson undertakes a comprehensive reexamination of the idea of modernism"--Back cover

Early Icelanders EQ02 ( )
in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of 23 documents is about the Early Icelanders and covers the time span from the first Norse settlement in Iceland around 874 A.D. to Iceland's incorporation into the kingdom of Norway in approximately 1262 A.D. The major focus is on the Commonwealth Period from 930 to 1262 A.D. Much of the cultural data gathered for this period comes from the analysis and interpretation of a number of Icelandic sagas written primarily in the thirteenth century. The most comprehensive study of the social, economic, and political changes taking place in Medieval Iceland over a four hundred year period is The dynamics of medieval Iceland by Durrenberger. This study begins with the first Norse settlement in Iceland around 874 A.D. and ends with the incorporation of Iceland into the kingdom of Norway in 1264 A.D. Fourteen of these documents were originally published in: From sagas to society, edited by Gísli Pálsson
