A mischievous eavesdropper on these conversations might have been amused by the venue they took place in. As far as the written word goes, Icelandic culture is, nowadays, mainly debated on Facebook. Our spiteful observer might find the press-enter-to-post type comments somewhat contradicting the enthusiastic defense of the local culture’s profundity. Surely a culture of reputed depths takes special care of its cultural media. Where would you look for the real debate? The really hardcore stuff, involving either a threatening dash of recently forged concepts or strikingly new sentences —or both?
