AUTHOR

SUMMARY

William Morris is normally thought of as a fantasy precursor of Tolkien, having written "The Wood Beyond the World" among others. But he was also a translator, along with Eirkr Magnsson, of tales originally in old Icelandic. "Gunnlaug the Worm-Tongue and Raven the Skald" is one of those efforts. It's an Icelandic saga composed in the 13th century, concerning the tragic rivalry of two poets, Gunnlag and Hrafn, for the hand of orsteinn Egilsson's daughter, Helga the Fair. The rivalry is carried out first in poetry, and later with weapons, as Gunnlaug challenges Hrafn to a holmgang -- a duel recognized by the Norse as a way to settle disputes. The saga is the first Icelandic saga to be published in an English edition.Morris, William is the author of 'Gunnlaug the Worm-Tongue and Raven the Skald', published 2007 under ISBN 9781603122436 and ISBN 1603122435.
