Summary
Shortly after World War I, Steinn, a young Icelandic poet-philosopher, heads abroad to make himself the most perfect man on earth and perceive glory on the visage of things. Leaving behind his homeland and would-be sweetheart, Diljá, for Europe, Steinn proves a master of any doctrine he cares to take up, but fails to satisfy his longing for perfection
