My name is Fridrikr Tomasson, sometimes called inn gamli "the Old One". I am an amateur scholar and poet studying skaldic poetry and attempting to write poetry modeled after Icelandic skaldic poetry as described in Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda.
This blog is designed to be a record of my journey, told through the poetry I've written, and through other observations.
Some of you have followed me at http://independent.academia.edu/tomdelfs - thank you for following me here. My first few postings may seem repetitious (because they will be re-postings). But new poetry will appear very soon.
For those who are seeing my blog for the first time, I hope you will enjoy my efforts and comment on them. Honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated; general praise is, too.
Some poems, at the beginning will be in English; the later and current poems are in Old Icelandic, which is not my native language, obviously.
Thanks for stopping by and checking my blog out.
