Course Description

An extraordinary blend of fact, myth and fiction, peopled with heroes, outlaws, lovers and the occasional troll, the sagas contain some of the richest vernacular writing of the Middle Ages. In this course, we will focus on a single saga - The Saga of Gunnlaug Serpent-Tongue - to explore the context in which the texts were composed, their unique prose style, their importance for Scandinavian and English identity, and their relationships with folklore and contemporary European literature. No prior knowledge is required.
