FROM THE PUBLISHER - Based on oral tales that originated in historical events in tenth-century Iceland, these two sagas follow the fate of a powerful Viking family across two generations, from its early Norwegian ancestry through fierce battles to defend its honour. GISLI SURSSON’S SAGA is a story of forbidden love and divided loyalties, in which the heroic Gisli vows to avenge the murder of his ‘sworn brother’ and sets in motion a chain of bloody events that culminate in tragedy. THE SAGA OF THE PEOPLE OF EYRI continues the story with Snorri, a cunning leader of the next generation, who uses his intellect to restore social order. Blending gripping narrative, humour, the supernatural and shrewd observation, these tales reveal the richness of the saga tradition and present a vivid record of a society moving from ruthless individualism to a Christian ethic of reconciliation and order. These clear, contemporary translations are accompanied by an introduction giving the historical and literary background to the sagas. This edition also includes appendices on social and political structures and early Icelandic literature, notes, maps, a glossary and an index of characters. ISBN: 0140447725.
