Anonymous: Egils Saga

Phelpstead, Carl Luke ORCID: 2010. Anonymous: Egils Saga. The Literary Encyclopedia

Full text not available from this repository.


The Icelandic saga named after the tenth-century Viking poet Egill Skalla-Grímsson was written c. 1230 and is preserved in three redactions from the fourteenth century onwards. The fullest and earliest more or less complete text to survive is in the compilation of Sagas of Icelanders known as Möðruvallabók (MS AM 132 fol.), but modern editions supplement this text from other manuscripts. The oldest manuscript fragment, known as theta, probably dates from the mid-thirteenth century and is the earliest evidence for the existence of the text.
