THE SAGAS OF ICELANDERS are amongst the crowning achievements of medieval literature. In their narrative artistry and characterisation, the Sagas rank with the world's greatest literary treasures - as epic as Homer, as deep in tragedy as Sophocles, as engagingly human as Shakespeare. They form a unique literary genre and have inspired writers as diverse as Walter Scott, Jorge Luis Borges and W H Auden.
