Creating the Medieval Saga : Versions, Variability & Editorial Interpretations of Old Norse Saga Literature Hardback
Edited by Judy Quinn, Emily Lethbridge
The essays in this book are a selection of papers delivered at the symposium Creating the Medieval Saga in Bergen 2005.
The essays have been revised after discussion with respondents and other members of the audience, and further refined in exchanges with the editors and the general editors of the Viking Collection since.
Focus at the symposium was on the ways in which editorial practices have created out of complex manuscript witnesses (dating from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century) a body of deceptively neat narratives, the medieval Icelandic sagas.
