About this title

Synopsis:

Here are three epic stories of exile and adventure: the heroes condemned to wander their lands in expiation of crimes committed in honour's name. Gisli with his biting sword Greyflank; Grettir the impetuous hot-head, and Hord the orphan, accursed at birth by his own mother. Each must do battle with the forces of an unforgiving fate - and with the destructive drives of his own character. Monsters, magic and all manner of romance are to be found in these three Icelandic sagas. Yet, with all their heroic extravagance, these tales are human before they are anything else, marked out by their down-to-earth conviction and their sometimes shocking emotional power.

About the Author:
