Comments An Introduction to Old Norse

  1. This book is completely surpassed by Anthony Faulkes New Introduction To Old Norse, but is still interesting for its historical value and is one of those quirky old oddities that must be owned.


  2. My junior year of college I did a study abroad at Oxford, primarily because they offered Old Norse, and I wanted to translate an Icelandic Saga as my senior project I took a tutorial on ON with professor Clarington, and spent many hours huddled over this text, slowly deciphering Hrafnkells Saga , and it was the beginning of the many years I would spend labouring over icelandic dictionaries translating Ragnars Saga Lodbrokar my senior year, a year in Reykjavik, and now my slow laborious work on O [...]

  6. Gordon s introduction to Old Norse remains a standard in the field A well selected anthology of prose and poetry including Skaldic verse , with detailed notes, and a comprehensive grammar and glossary make this an ideal choice for beginning and intermediate readers Check out the acknowledgements for a shout out to Oxford don J R R Tolkien
