Njal's Saga

Njal's Saga
Robert Cook (Introduction)
LITERATURE •  2002 •  PAPER  • 384 PAGES

Like many of the Norse sagas, this epic of the heroic (and handsome) Gunnar Hamundarson and his scheming friend Njal is a tragedy shot through with black comedy. Originally written in Icelandic sometime in the 13th century, it's an earthy tale with a strong sense of place, featuring murder, mayhem, a famous feud and noble deeds.  (ICL16, $17.00)
