A rare translation from The Icelandic by Eirikr Magnusson and the famed historian, artist and exponent of Germanic culture, William Morris.
Like the great tragic plays of ancient Greece, the mythology of the Germanic North was inspired by the ideals of loyalty to family, truthfulness in speech, and the honoring of all oaths and promises. Transgressions against these sacred values constituted the essence if Greek and Germanic tragedy. The Volsunga Saga is a tragedy of epic proportions, comparable to the plays of Euripides.
