Summary Eiríks saga rauða Read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ê Unknown Unknown Ê 5 Free read Selected by Gwyn Jones the eminent Celtic scholar for their excellence and variety these nine Icelandic sa. This collection is best reviewed as individual stories which is after all what they are Some of the characters and places are in common between the individual sagas but from a reader point I feel they are discreteHaving read a few sagas I can say that the editors and translators are what make or break a collection and this editor does am amazing job The introduction is almost as interesting as the sagas themselves and one can get so much out of it Gwyn Jones brings the translation to life elouently and vividly the beautiful turns of phrase make these sagas clear and almost contemporary in feeling While I do not have the bloodthirst code of honour of the Icelanders in the stories the fact that they have a code and that it is deeply important to them even when problematic to live by is clear in every sagaI won t review all the stories but I will say that the one I had most looked forward to The Vapnfjord Men was the one I found most problematic It is uite long with too many people and circumstances and places to easily keep straight in my head There was a lot or re reading as I tried to create a linear picture of something that uite clearly should have been a spoken word experience I hope one day I get to hear it told rather than reading it Also has this ever been a movie or Teeve series If not why on earth not It would be spectacularly brilliant in that mediumI adored the fun storytelling of Authun and the Bear Eirik The Red so different from the children s book I loved as a child but even better and Thorstein Staff Struck

I was not impressed with the translator Of course since this was the only translation I was able to find its hard to say if its entirely the translators fault or the fault of the work itself I just was not very impressed with the language use in this collection it lacked any poetic uality even the short snippets of verse seemed to lack a poetic feel I think that at least a couple of these stories were very memorable King Hrolf standing out significantly here The first story was terrible Such petty suabbles and simple minded concerns were difficult to relate to Perhaps these types of feuds were in fact the main concerns of peasants in this sort of environment who am I to say If it was I can t say it makes for terribly interesting literature The latter stories in this collection were interesting by far
