Marlene Ciklamini (Rutgers)

Workshop: “The Call of Britain in Old Norse Sagas”

Lunch 12 to 1 pm, followed by the workshop from 1 to 2.30
East Pyne 010,
Princeton University

Sagas are renowned for exploration: exploration of character in dramatic form, of ethical questions and of the world that lay close to, and beyond, Iceland’s geographical confines. Anglo-Saxon England was part of this world. The question before us is thus an expansive and elusive one. How did thirteenth-century sagas preserve or transform the oral tradition that commemorated Viking activities in Britain?
