Tóroddur Poulsen

Tóroddur Poulsen (1957) is a Faroese poet, graphic artist, and musician from Tórshavn. Since his literary debut in Varðin, Poulsen has published nearly forty books and become an inimitable force in Nordic literature. His colorful reading style and rebellious alter ego, The Garage God, have earned him a reputation as the “Punk Poet” of the Faroe Islands. He has twice received the M.A. Jacobsen Literature Award and recently won the Faroe Islands' most prestigious cultural prize, Mentanarvirðisløn Landsins. Katrin Ottarsdóttir's film, A Line A Day Must Be Enough (2008), documents the day-to-day life of Tóroddur Poulsen as well as his complicated relationship with his native archipelago.
