Product description

Review

"...I should warn you that they are addictive – ... it's hard to go past The Complete Sagas." -- Danny Yee's Book Reviews, 2001

"At the end of Volume Five the reader leaves an intensely-imagined world, comparable in realistic effect with Hardy or Dickens." -- The Times Literary Supplement, 34.6.1998

"Collectively, the sagas of Icelanders provide a window to history and culture that is unique..." -- Speculum - A Journal of Medieval Studies, Oct. 1998

"TCSI" presents fresh, new, highly readable versions. ...regarded as the most "modern" works of medieval European literature" -- The Denver Post, April 29, 2001

...the recent publication in English translations of the Complete Sagas of Icelanders(...), erects a milestone on the international publishing scene. -- The New York Review of Books, December 20, 2001
