The Saga of Done Into English Saga with the Story, Vol. 2

Excerpt from The Saga of Done Into English Saga With the Story, Vol. 2 The present volume of the Saga Library contains two important sagas - the "Eyrbyggja saga," which we call the Ere-dwellers' story, and the "Heioarviga saga," the Story of the Heath-slayings; the former a complete, the latter a fragmentary record of the events to which they refer. I. The Ere-dwellers' Story is in character a mixture of a saga, or dramatically told tale, and a chronicle record of events outside its aim and purpose. It differs from all other Icelandic sagas in having for a central hero a man of peace, yet at the same time revengeful and ruthless when he sees his opportunity, always cool and collected, dissimulating, astute, scheming, and unmistakably hinted at as one devoid of courage. Snorri the Priest figures throughout the story up to the death of the nobly chivalrous Arnkel, when we except his clever outwitting of his cowardly uncle and stepfather, Bork the Thick, as distinctly a second-rate chief, above whom Arnkel towers to such an extent that all the interest of the narrative centres in him.
