New Translations of Ancient Sagas|
The Sagas of Fridthjof the Bold
Author: Ben Waggoner
Publisher: The Troth
Category: Asatru/Heathen Level: All
Written in Iceland, some time around the year 1400, The Saga of Fridthjof the Bold is a swashbuckling tale of romance and adventure, as the hero Fridthjof loves, loses, and is reunited with his beloved Ingibjorg. The first of the Old Norse sagas to be translated completely into English, Fridthjof's saga was popular through the 19th century, inspiring poets, painters, and composers. Largely forgotten during the 20th century, the saga is brought to life again in an all-new translation. This is not a reprint of an out-of-copyright translation -- the saga was translated "from the ground up."
Paired with The Saga of Fridthjof the Bold is the wild Saga of Thorstein Viking's Son, the life story of Fridthjof's father. Packed with giants, trolls, magic spells, magic items, feuds, battles, and friendships, the Saga of Thorstein Viking's Son is also brought to life anew in this volume. The story of Fridthjof's own descendants is told in a saga extract called the Tale of Vikar, also included. For those who wish to delve more deeply into these sagas' background, a full introduction, copious notes, and a bibliography are provided.
From romantic love, to tragic heroism, to comic farce. . . from mighty human warriors, to uncanny monsters, to the Gods themselves. . . these sagas range across the imaginative world of the ancient Northlands. You'll find a way into that world in this book.
Where To Buy: Available from Amazon.com, Lulu.com, and other on-line retailers. Lulu.com also offers the option of purchasing the book as a PDF download.
