Eyrbyggja Saga




Eyrbyggja Saga
Paul Edwards, Hermann Pálsson, 192 pages
Mixing realism with wild Gothic imagination, history with eerie tales of hauntings, it dramatizes a thirteenth-century view of the past, from the pagan anarchy of the Viking Age to the settlement of Iceland, the coming of Christianity and the beginnings of organized society. Its central figure is Snorri, a man so perplexingly ambiguous that the narrator himself is drawn to speculate on his motives and a character who brilliantly epitomizes the violent stresses of his times.
