Written in the thirteenth century, Njal's Saga
is a story that explores perennial human
problems-from failed marriages to divided
loyalties, from the law's inability to curb
human passions to the terrible consequences when
decent men and women are swept up in a tide of
violence beyond their control. It is populated
by memorable and complex characters like Gunnar
of Hlidarendi, a powerful warrior with an
aversion to killing, and the not-so-villainous
Mord Valgardsson. Full of dreams, strange
prophecies, violent power struggles, and fragile
peace agreements, Njal's Saga tells the
compelling story of a fifty-year blood feud
that, despite its distance from us in time and
place, is driven by passions familiar to us all.
This Penguin Classics edition includes an
introduction, chronology, index of characters,
plot summary, explanatory notes, maps, and
suggestions for further reading.
