This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This valuable book rescues the Arthurian narratives of medieval Scandinavia from their sometimes marginalized status in the field of Old Norse-Icelandic studies. A team of eight experts and experienced scholars have assembled ten chapters covering all facets of these texts with an admirable up-to-date and well balanced account of both the philological and literary issues, including such underpublicized matters as Arthurian echoes in the Icelandic sagas, the late ballad versions and the Slavic analogues. The book will serve both as a summation of earlier scholarship and as a platform for future research. It is full and detailed enough to serve scholars and accessible enough to appeal to general readers.-Theodore M. Andersson, Indiana University. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: In The Arthur of the North, Marianne E. Kalinke offers the first book-length study of the Arthurian literature translated from French and Latin into Old Norse-Icelandic in the thirteenth century. Preserved mostly in Icelandic manuscripts, in early modern times these Scandinavian Arthurian legends inspired the composition of narrative poems and chapbooks in Denmark, Iceland, and Norway, chiefly of the Tristan legend. The importation of Arthurian literature in the North, primarily French romances and lais, is indebted largely to the efforts of King Hákon Hákonarson (r. 1217?63) of Norway, who commissioned the translation of Thomas de Bretagne?s Tristan in 1226, and subsequently several Arthurian romances by Chrétien de Troyes and a number of Breton lais. Kalinke shows the transmission of foreign courtly literature in the non-courtly culture of Iceland, and the changes taken on in narrative and style as the tales made their way north.
The Arthur legends and literature are generally associated with England and France, where they grew up and reached their full flowering. But as early as the thirteenth century, they had also reached Scandinavia and begun influencing poetry and ballads there. The Arthur of the North explores the circumstances of the transmission of Arthurian literature to the Nordic region, with a particular focus on Belarus.
