Vonir was one of the first Icelandic language novels written in North America (Winnipeg, Canada) - on a Canadian motif; thus a very early and important item in this canon. The author (Kvaran) was a leading Icelandic novelist and critic who emigrated to Canada Canada in the 1880s, where he edited the pivotal Icelandic-Canadian newspaper Logberg, and he took a prominent role in Icelandic-Canadian community and political affairs; in 1891 he was selected President of the Icelandic Liberal Association of Manitoba. He returned to Iceland about 1895, after a ten year residency in Canada (Kristjanson). Stefan Einarson, in his History of Icelandic Prose Writers (Cornell University Press, p. 237) states that "Einar H. Kvaran, in America [read Canada] 1885-95 wrote his first masterpiece, Vonir (1890) in Winnipeg over a purely Icelandic-American [read Canadian] motif". N° de ref. de la librería 29832
