This book contains an introduction to and a critical discussion of the Icelandic sagas. The author presents the historical and literary background of the saga genre, analyses its narrative form, and describes the world view expressed in the sagas. The book has four parts. The first deals with the contextualising knowledge that is needed to ensure that our conversations with the sagas are free from misunderstanding. This is followed by a discussion of the sagas as narrative art, and of the ways of developng an understanding of the world the sagas depict. The final part draws the threads together and reflects on the development of the genre and its special importance for today. Dr. Vésteinn Ólason is Professor of Icelandic Literature at the University of Iceland and a distinguished scholar in his field. Dr. Andrew Wawn, the translator of the book, is Reader in English and Icelandic Studies at the University of Leeds.
