Morine Krissdottir was born in Canada of Icelandic descent. Trained in both English literature and psychology, her special interest is the relationship of myth and creativity. Her interest in the writer John Cowper Powys (1872-1963) is long-standing and she has written several analytical works, including The Magical Quest (Macdonald, 1980). She has recently completed the definitive biography of Powys, Descents of Memory, which is now published by Overlook/Duckworth.

 

Morine is also the curator of two important literary collections at the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, Dorset. Both the Powys Collection and the Sylvia Townsend Warner/Valentine Ackland Collection are held there, under Morine’s supervision. To visit these collections, see the Contact Us page.
