Njal's Saga or The Story of Burnt Njal

Some brief overview of book

Instigated by a spiteful and selfish wife, a grim blood feud between the families of two well-to-do Icelandic landowners spirals out of control, claiming lives and property. Widely regarded as the capstone of Icelandic literary achievement, this gripping thirteenth-century saga not only recounts long and costly battles but documents Viking civic and legal institutions as well. It also presents a cogent exposition of Icelandic religious practices amid stirring tales of war and conquest.

The finest English-language version available, this volume includes an informative introduction, editor's notes, and a complete chronology of events.
