Guðmundsdóttir, Þuríður

Þuríður Guðmundsdóttir was born on a farm in western Iceland, where she spent her childhood, until she moved to Reykjavík, where she worked, among other things, as a teacher. Her poetry collections, from Aðeins eitt blóm, 1969, to Nóttin hlustar á mig, 1994, consist of condensed poems often containing images of nature; internal life is often symbolised through references to nature and the surrounding world.
