About this Item

SCARCE. Inscribed by series editor, Harris, to noted scholar, Stanley Greenfield. Very light speckling to top and fore edge. DJ near fine. Slight edgewear to DJ. Gilt lettering to spine, midnight blue cloth-covered boards. Very clean, tight, bright. 387 pp with contributors, index of texts and authors, index of critics, and index of topics, with 2 pp list of related publications to rear of text. This is volume 45 of Islandica, a series relating to Iceland and the FIske Icelandic Collection of Cornell University Libraries, edited by Joseph Harris. "The current revival of interest in the rich and varied literature of early Scandinavia has prompted a corresponding interest in its background: its origins, social and historical context, and relationship to other medieval literatures," (front flap). Ambitious new essays from six distinguised scholars (Lindow, Harris, Frank, Andersson, Clover and Kalinke) are here presented as the first book-length survey of Old Norse literature in English. "The contributors summarize and comment on scholarly work in the major branches of the field: eddic and skaldic poetry, family and kings' sagas, courtly writing, and mythology.".
