The Saga of the Volsungs: With the Saga of Ragnar Lothbrok By Jackson Crawford
From the translator of the bestselling Poetic Edda (Hackett, 2015) comes a gripping new rendering of two of the greatest sagas of Old Norse literature. Together the two sagas recount the story of seven generations of a single legendary heroic family and comprise our best source of traditional lore about its members—including, among others, the dragon-slayer Sigurd, Brynhild the Valkyrie, and the Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok.
Dr. Jackson Crawford is a specialist in Old Norse mythology and language at the University of Colorado.
