Northern Antiquities and An Abstract of the Eyrbyggja Saga by M. Mallet,Sir Walter Scott

Northern antiquities. An abstract of the eyrbtggja saga, By Sir Walter Scott /. LONDON.

Scott had clearly developed this enthusiasm by the time he was a student in Edinburgh, for in 1790 he read a paper on Anglo-Saxon and Icelandic lore to the Literary Society, and in the following year he presented a paper on Scandinavian mythology to the Speculative Society. Once he had passed his exams he spent the autumn evenings of 1792 poring over Bartholin’s book on Danish antiquities

An Abstract of the Eyrbiggia-Saga. Indeed as a version of Eyrbyggja, and as the first complete example in English of the narrative contents of an Icelandic family saga, Scott's Abstract is not as convincing, representative, or accu-rate as it might have been. In addition to the questionable selection of material, the Abstract also has many stylistic weaknesses.

Eyrbyggja saga (Icelandic pronunciation: ( listen)) is one of the Icelanders' sagas; its title can be translated as The Saga of the People of Eyri. It was written by an anonymous writer, who describes a long-standing feud between Snorri Goði and Arnkel Goði, two strong chieftains within the Norse community that settled in Iceland. The title is slightly misleading as it deals also with the clans from Þórsnes and Alptafjörðr on Iceland. The most central character is Snorri Þorgrímsson, referred to as Snorri Goði and Snorri the Priest. Snorri was the nephew of the hero. Mallet, Paul Henri, 1730-1807 (1847).
