9780801441493: The Saga of Olaf Tryggvason (Islandica)

Oddr Snorrason, a Benedictine monk in northern Iceland in the late twelfth century, composed a landmark Latin biography of the legendary Norwegian king Olaf Tryggvason (died 1000 C.E.). This biography was soon translated into Icelandic, and the translation (though not the Latin original) is preserved in two somewhat differing versions and a small fragment of a third. The Saga of Olaf Tryggvason is the first English translation of this text, augmented by an introduction and notes to guide the reader.

There is a strong possibility that Oddr's biography was the first full-length saga of the Icelandic Middle Ages. It ushered in a century of saga writing that assured Iceland a unique place in medieval literature and in the history of prose writing. Aside from being a harbinger of the saga tradition, and indeed of the modern novel, The Saga of Olaf Tryggvason has its own literary merits, including an epic description of the great Battle of Svoldr, in which King Olaf succumbed. In significant ways the narrative of this battle anticipates the mature style of the classical sagas in the thirteenth century.

From the Inside Flap:

"Theodore M. Andersson’s translation is the first complete English rendering of Oddr Snorrason’s Óláfs saga Tryggvasonar, one of the earliest of the sagas of the kings of Norway and a work that deserves to be much better known. Apart from its significance for students and scholars of Old Icelandic literature, medievalists, and historians, the Saga of Olaf Tryggvason is intrinsically interesting—a good story well told."—David McDougall, University of Toronto

"This close and readable translation, put together by a scholar who knows so much about the craft of saga-writing, is exemplary. From the wan dignity of persecuted pagans to the son-et-lumière drama of a disastrous sea-battle, there is much here to surprise and delight."—Roberta Frank, Yale University

About the Author:

Theodore M. Andersson is Professor of Germanic Studies Emeritus at Indiana University. He is the author of several books, including The Sagas of Norwegian Kings (1130–1265),The Partisan Muse in the Early Icelandic Sagas (1200–1250), Early Epic Scenery: Homer, Virgil, and the Medieval Legacy and The Legend of Brynhild; translator of The Saga of Olaf Tryggvason; and cotranslator, with Kari Ellen Gade, of "Morkinskinna": The Earliest Icelandic Chronicle of the Norwegian Kings (1030–1157), all from Cornell.
