    Epub Snorri Sturluson ✓ Heimskringla Kindle ´ ✓ heimskringla epub, Heimskringla PDFEPUBThe is a revised update of an early Everyman edition of Snorri's Heimskringla that was originally translated by Samuel Laing in the 1840s The revisions are done by Jacueline Simpson and Peter Foote who for some strange reason revise the prose texts and supply new introductions but leave Samuel Laing's strange verse adaptions of Scaldic Poetry untouched which in my opinion would have benefited from from a complete rewriteThis huge compilation of Norse Kings Sagas is made up of sixteen sagas that begin in the legendary Scandivian past at terminate in the thirteenth century I found the Ynglinga saga to be the most interesting because it recounts the legendary history of the Norwegian kings and tells the story of the war between the Æser and Vaner Also enjoyable was Ha

    Epub Snorri Sturluson ✓ Heimskringla Kindle ´ ✓ heimskringla epub, Heimskringla PDFEPUBFirst of all let me say that I can't imagine reading this on a Kindle It's 800 pages long and if you're looking for action boring But it is a wonderful example of Scandinavian medieval literature If you can get into the rhythm of it the translator has done an excellent job of making it easy to read Because it is medieval it's hard sometimes to keep track of who is who The author assumes you know or remember from

    Epub Snorri Sturluson ✓ Heimskringla Kindle ´ ✓ heimskringla epub, Heimskringla PDFEPUBHeimskringla it sounds like a good curse word to say when you accidentally hit your finger with a hammer “Heimskringla”I think that also pretty much summmarizes the mood old “Snorri” the author of this work who lived from the 1170’s 1240’s AD angrily puts one in after reading the farcical abbreviation he hammered over the lines of the true Ancient Kings of the North He mostly passes off the over four thousand year old Norse Gothic King Line’s with just some recently deceased usurpers of half danish origin who were at best living in the 850’s to 950’s AD just three centuries before him like Harald Fairhair; he with his famed an

    Epub Snorri Sturluson ✓ Heimskringla Kindle ´ ✓ heimskringla epub, Heimskringla PDFEPUBReally interesting and a really valuable link to the past but my eyelids hung heavy and often and getting through this was of a chore than a pleasure I wouldn't attempt this if you are new to the saga's if only for it's sheer size Start with The Vinland Sagas It's much intruiging with less focus on the kings and on commoner's of the highly entertaining kind lives and voyages and it's a one sitting kind of saga whereas the Heimskringla will soon become a new appendage

    Epub Snorri Sturluson ✓ Heimskringla Kindle ´ ✓ heimskringla epub, Heimskringla PDFEPUBReading Snorre is sorta like reading the Bible you know that it's a good read and you know it's been amazingly influential but still it's difficult to get in toAll Norwegian children know at least some of the highlights King Olav's glorious death Harald Hårfagre's vow to conuer Norway or die hairy But they are true highlights Reading Snorre means reading about all the less memorable kings and their doings as wellThat said Snorre is an historian first and foremost and the Kongesagaer is a work of history written with care for detail and a very modern sense of criticism It's difficult to rate on a five star system again kinda like the Bible but as a read I have As an historical document it would rate five Easily

    Epub Snorri Sturluson ✓ Heimskringla Kindle ´ ✓ heimskringla epub, Heimskringla PDFEPUBIgnore the rather suspect black gothic text against a red background this is an interesting bookSo far the first bit The Saga of the Ynglings consists of along series of basically crap kings who rule for about five minutes each They all die in a ludicrous manner one drowns in a vat of mead while wandering around drunk to look for a place to take a pee one gets lured into a cleft in a rock by a dwarf while drunk and is never seen a
