Description
Written by an anonymous author in fourteenth-century Iceland, The Saga of King Hrolf Kraki is built on almost a thousand years of oral traditions, many of which are related to the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf. It recounts the tragedy and strife within Denmark's royal hall during the migration period (fifth and sixth centuries A.D.). Filled with extraordinary events and fierce battle scenes, powerful women, wizards, sorceresses, and "beserker" fighters -- originally members of a cult of Odin -- The Saga of King Hrolf Kraki combines legend, myth, and magic in a powerful epic of the heroic past.
