Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl is an Icelandic poet and the author of three novels. He is also an avid translator of foreign literature. He works with performance and sound-poetry, and regularly appears at poetry and music festivals, as well as dabbling in the dark arts of the concrete. His books in Icelandic have been critically acclaimed, and critics have found reason to compare him to such dissimilar poets as Snorri Sturluson and Vladimir Mayakovsky. In recent years he has explored the possibilities inherent in the European and North-American avant-garde traditions, and focused on disassembling language into its visual, social and linguistic units. Eiríkur is a founding member of the Nýhil poet cooperative.
