Poems

***

Beinir Bergsson (1997), føddur í Tórshavn, er uppvaksin í Sørvági. Tað, at vera avbyrgdur og umgirdur við fjøllum og havi í norðatlantshavinum hevur í stóran mun myndað Beinir sum yrkjara. Frá tí Beinir var lítil, skrivaði hann sínar tankar og kenslur niður fyri at viðgera deyðan hjá pápanum. Av tí sama var hann drigin at bókmentum, máli og serliga yrkingum. Hann royndi áhaldandi at eksperimentera við tekstasløgum. Sum 20 ára gamal varð fyrsta yrkingasavnið hjá Beini Tann lítli drongurin og beinagrindin (2017) givið út av Sprotanum. Savnið viðger evnir sum deyða úr sjónarhorninum hjá einum barni, einum tannáringi og einum vaksnum.

Beinir helt síðan á at skriva og komu hansara yrkingar við í bókmentaligum tíðarritum so sum Varðin og Vencil. Í 2021 kom seinna yrkingasavnið Sólgarðurin út hjá Eksil.

Í 2018 varð Beini handað Ebbu-virðislønina fyri yrkingasavnið Tann lítli drongurin og beinagrindin. Í núverandi løtu er Beinir búsettur í Føroyum.

Beinir Bergsson, born in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands in 1997, grew up in the village of Sørvágur, on the western most Island of the Faroe Islands. Living so close to the sea and mountains on the isolated islands in the middle of the north Atlantic Ocean has in many ways shaped Beinir.

From a young age Beinir started to write as a tool to express his feelings after the death of his father. Naturally, he was drawn to poems and kept experimenting with ways to express himself. Seven years later at the age of 20 he released a collection of poems which surrounded themes like death from a child’s, teenager’s and an adult’s point of view. While experimenting with different kinds of writings he discovered his passion for languages.

After releasing his collection of poems called Tann Lítli drongurin og beinagrindin (2017), he kept writing poems and his works were also published in Faroese literary periodicals as Varðin and Vencil. In 2021 was his second collection of poems Sólgarðurin published by Eksil.

 

Beinir was in 2018 granted the Faroese literary prize called Ebba-virðislønin (EBBA-award). The EBBA-award is named after the legendary award-winning Faroese author and translator Ebba Hentze (1930-2015) who in her will stated that her fortunes should be granted to young talents in literature.

Beinir is currently living in the Faroes.
