About this title

Synopsis:

The essays in this book were delivered at the symposium "Creating the Medieval Saga," held in Bergen in 2005. The papers have been revised after discussion with respondents and other members of the symposium audience. Focus at the symposium was on the ways in which editorial practices have created, out of complex manuscript witnesses (dating from the 13th to the 19th century), a body of deceptively neat narratives, the medieval Icelandic sagas.

About the Author:

Judy Quinn is Reader in Old Norse Literature in the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at the University of Cambridge.
