Pálsson, Hermann & Paul Edwards, translators.  
Hrolf Gautreksson. A Viking Romance. Translated by Hermann Pálsson and Paul Edwards.

Publisher: University of Toronto Press, 1972.
'...Hrolf Gautreksson, like may of the legendary sagas, conflates material of three principal kinds. At one level is the ancient legendary material, in which nature and natural processes are constantly being distorted. This is a world of sorcery, giants, dwarfs, magic swords, and prophetic horns. At another level there is the viking material with certain codes of conduct..., plenty of physical action... reflects an age of energetic acquisitiveness. And at a third level we have material from the period of literary Romance, where emphasis is laid on courtly manners and self-control superimposed on the older virtues of courage and ambition. ...essentially escape literature. The interest in a leisured life reflects not a prosperous period in Iceland, but a mode of fantasy- escapism in a period of increasing economic strain and political mediocrity, with the loss of independence in 1262, and the subsequent economic burdens laid on the country.' 148 p., 22 cm.; pictorial dj chipped, scuffed, else VG. 30555.

Scherman, Katharine.  
Daughter of Fire: A Portrait of Iceland.

Publisher: Little, Brown [1976]. 'First Edition'.
xii, 364 p., index, photos. "'Daughter of Fire' unfolds both a natural and a human history of the mid-Atantic island... from her first emergence out of the ocean... through the shaping of her landscape by the violent forces of volcanoes, glaciers, storms, and ocean, to the formation of her remarkable farmers' republic by Viking warriors of the tenth century and her turbulent history from that day to the present. Scherman pays particular attention to that outstanding body of literature which flowered at the time of Europe's Dark Ages: the famous Icelandic histories, skaldic verse, family sagas, and the incomparable Eddas. She also reviews the island's natural history...' Dj a bit worn, ink owner name; VG. Stock#24169.
