So he saturates even remotely past happenings with a gripping first-hand quality...Hollanders translation is very good, fresh on every page ...Wherever you open the book, the life grips you and you read on....—Ted Hughes, New York Review of BooksAmong the many contibutions to world literature that ancient Iceland has given us, Heimskringla stands out as one of the truly monumental works. Among medieval European histories in the vernacular it has no equal.—Modern PhilologyBeginning with the dim prehistory of the mythical gods and their descendants, Heimskringla recounts the history of the kings of Norway through the reign of Olaf Haraldsson, who became Norways patron saint.

Once found in most homes and schools and still regarded as a national treasure, Heimskringla influenced the thinking and literary style of Scandinavia over several centuries.
