Product description


"Byock's scholarly ambitions are boldly imaginative and on the cutting edge of the human sciences."--"Journal of American Folklore


This study demonstrates how the dominant concern of medieval Icelandic society - the channelling of violence into accepted patterns of feud and the regulation of conflict - is reflected in the narrative of the sagas. It explores how the sagas are complex expressions of medieval social thought.
