Gisli Sursson's Saga and the Saga of the People of Eyri by Judy Quinn

Book Description

These sagas recount fierce feuds in which honour is fought for, sacrifice is demanded, and blood is shed. The fate of the characters at the centre of each saga, however, is very different. Gisli is a traditional Viking-age hero who is determined to exact revenge at any cost and whose death is tragic when it comes. In contrast his nephew, Snorri, represents a new generation and acts to strengthen the new social order. Taken together these sagas reveal the richness and variety of the saga tradition.

Handbook to Eddic Poetry by Judy Quinn Handbook to Eddic Poetry, Hardback (August 2016)

A comprehensive introduction to Old Norse-Icelandic eddic poetry, presenting the latest research on medieval Scandinavian myths, legend and poetics.

Creating the Medieval Saga by Judy Quinn Creating the Medieval Saga, Hardback (November 2010)

Focus at the symposium - Creating the Medieval Saga in Bergen 2005 - was on the ways in which editorial practices have created out of complex manuscript witnesses (dating from the 13th to the 19th century) a body of deceptively neat narratives, the medieval Icelandic sagas. This title collects the papers that were delivered at the symposium.
