    Jens Christian Djurhuus or Sjvarbndin, A Faroese Poet

    Jens Christian Djurhuus

    Jens Christian Djurhuus or Sjvarbndin (August 21, 1773 November 21, 1853) was the first poet who wrote in Faroese. He composed several Faroese ballads in traditional style on historical themes. The best known is Ormurin langi. Djurhuus also composed satirical poems directed against Danish rule in the Faroe Islands.
    Djurhuus was the fourth son of Johan Christian Djurhuus (1741-1815) and Maria Rnning (1741-1807). They lived in Nes, Eysturoy, where his Danish grandfather Christen Djurhuus (1708-1775) was provost. His mother came from Aust-Agder in Norway and is supposed to be a descendant of Earl Haakon Sigurdsson.
    In 1797, he married Jhanna Maria Jensdttir from Kollafjrur, daughter of farmer Jens Didriksen, Vi Sjgv. Because Jhanna Maria was his only child, she was sole heiress of the farm. The couple moved to this farm during the same year. This farm became the cultural centre of the village.

    Joen Danielsen

    Joen Danielsen Known as Kvvks-Jgvan (Jgvan of Kvvk), (* 11 June 1843 in Kvvk, Faroe Islands - 2 May 1926). He married and settled in the town of Gjgv.
    Kvvks-Jgvan was one of the earliest traditional faroese poets to write poems in the faroese language. Growing up together with J. P. Gregoriussen in the town of Kvvk when V. U. Hammershaimb was parish priest there, he taught himself to read faroese by borrowing books from Mr. Hammershaimb.
    Among the many poems he wrote, Jgvan also wrote traditional faroese ballads, the most famous being "kpakvi" (the ballad of the Selkie or seal woman) which consists of 68 verses. This ballad is based on a faroese legend about seals coming ashore to dance in human appearance on January 7, which locally is known as "old christmas" which was celebrated in accordance with the Gregorian calendar.
