Jane Smiley (preface); Robert Kellogg (intro.). In Iceland, the Age of the Vikings is also known as the Saga Age. A unique body of medieval literature, the Sagas rank with the world’s greatest literary treasures. Set around the turn of the first millennium A.D., these stories depict with a modern realism the lives & deeds of the Norse men & women who first settled Iceland & of their descendants, who ventured ultimately to the coast of North America itself. The Sagas are tales of flesh-&-blood people burdened with a heroic legacy -- the Viking traditions of honor & blood vengeance. This edition includes 11 Sagas & 6 shorter tales, drawn from the first English translation of the entire corpus of the Sagas & the 49 connected tales, published in Iceland.
