CHARACTERS Ü RATITECHNOLOGIES.CO.ZA ´ Sigurdur Gylfi Magnusson Sigurdur Gylfi Magnusson ´ 1 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS Ê Wasteland with Words: A Social History of Iceland Wasteland with Words explores the evolution and transformation of Icela. I read this book just after a trip to Iceland I had seen it in a bookstore there and it really provides an interesting background to everything that we saw The book covers the period of the early 19th century up to now which has been a period of tremendous change for Iceland Iceland had been isolated from many of the changes in Europe due to its remote position in the north Atlantic and its harsh environment It was still a very primitive place even at the start of the 20th century Some of the facts are pretty amazing when you think of Iceland and how it is today Most people were still living in turf houses even after WWII Sanitation and personal hygiene were poor then as well tapeworms lice leprosy and tuberculosis were common Farm land was limited and controlled by a minority Many people spent much of their lives as bonded labourers who needed permission to marry The poor ended up renting farms on marginal land where they were always at risk of losing everything to debt in a bad year This book certainly helps to put Laxness s most famous novel Independent People into context There were hardly any doctors in Iceland and no roads the national ring road was completed in the 1970 s and when the postal system was first introduced a sort of pony train the post was delivered 3 times a year Yet the people were literate and social evenings were spent reading together the famous Icelandic sagas and anything else that was to hand Iceland has achieved so much in such a short space of time and now that the economic miracle bubble has burst the uestion is where do they go here If you are interested in Iceland and its culture this is well worth reading 40 Lecons Pour Parler Anglais debt in a bad year This book certainly helps to put Laxness s most famous novel Independent People into context There were hardly any Assimil L'Anglais L'Anglais Pack CD (livre+4CD audio) English for French-speakers (SANS PEINE) (French Edition) doctors in Iceland and no roads the national ring road was completed in the 1970 s and when the postal system was first introduced a sort of pony train the post was Assimil Guide Conversation Wolof (For French speakers) do they go here If you are interested in Iceland and its culture this is well worth reading
