Index. ~Book is fine and unread in a fine dust jacket, now in a clear archival cover. ~~ A collection of quality critical essays from top-rank specialist-scholars of Old-Norse-Icelandic and Old English literature, which "explore the translation and transmission of Norse myth, the use of literature in society and authorial self-reflection, the place of myth in the expression of family relationships and recurrent motifs in Northern literature. The essays . . . include an examination of the theme of sibling rivalry, an analysis of Christ's unusual ride into hell as found in both Old Norse and Old English, a discussion of Beowulf's swimming prowess, and an analysis of the poetry in Snorri Sturluson's 'Edda'."
