Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Penguin Classics list of medieval sagas grows ever more impressive with these two thrilling Norse sagas

One of the best -loved works of Icelandic literature, this stirring tale of war and romance follows three generations of strong women, wise leaders, and hotheaded warriors. The only saga rumored to have been written by a woman, it tells of the centuries predating 1245, when magic rites and sorcery clashed with the spread of Christianity throughout a rapidly changing Viking world.
