Gunnar’s Good Reads 1

Every week, the Hall’s companion Gunnar Hnefataflsson embarks on a mission to promote the sagas of the medieval North, the scholarship that surrounds them, and discover new stories that have been inspired by them. These are the books that he found this week:

Njal’s Saga (as translated by Robert Cook)

View this post on Instagram

Njal’s Saga was the first saga about #medieval #Iceland that I read. It is both heroic and deeply human, following the lives of complex, memorable characters struggling with their passions in a world that forces good men and women into a tide of violence beyond their control. But can they overcome the failed marriages, divided loyalties, and slanderous verses that come their way? Can their society withstand the violent feuding that works to consume it? Find out by reading this epic saga yourself! ➳ https://www.bookdepository.com/Njals-Saga-Leifur-Eiricksson/9780140447699/?a_aid=fjorn ➳ #SagaSaturday #GunnarsGang #bookstagram #books #book #read #reading #literature #saga #sagas
