This is the first edition of a complete Icelandic saga with introduction and glossary for the use of English-speaking students. The introduction discusses briefly, on the basis of recent investigations, the origin and the character of the family saga as a literary genre, and gives an analysis and interpretation of Hrafnkels saga, a classic exemplar of the type. A second section offers a thorough exposition of the syntax of Old Norse narrative prose, hitherto lacking in English; and the glossary, with full references, seeks to explain all difficulties occurring in the text which are not dealt with in the introduction. The book contains two views of localities mentioned in the saga, a facsimile of the oldest manuscript, and a map of Iceland.
