EgilÉs Saga tells the story of the long and
brutal life of tenth-century warrior-poet and
farmer Egil Skallagrimsson: a psychologically
ambiguous character who was at once the composer
of intricately beautiful poetry and a physical
grotesque capable of staggering brutality. This
Icelandic saga recounts EgilÉs progression from
youthful savagery to mature wisdom as he
struggles to defend his honor in a running feud
with the Norwegian king Erik Bloodaxe and fight
for the English king Athelstan in his battles
against Scotland. Exploring issues as diverse as
the question of loyalty, the power of poetry,
and the relationship between two brothers who
love the same woman, EgilÉs Saga is a
fascinating depiction of a deeply human character.
