Description

The Story of the Ere-Dwellers -- also known as the Eyrbyggja Saga -- was originally written in Icelandic (that is, in Old Norse) sometime around the middle of the 13th century. The original author is unknown, although some scholars have suggested a connection with the author of the Laxdaela Saga. This translation by William Morris (yes, the well-known fantasist, architect, and political firebrand -- the man really was a amazing polymath) was first published in 1892.

Author Biography

William Morris ( 1834 - 1896) was an English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator and socialist activist. Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, he was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. His literary contributions helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, while he played a significant role in propagating the early socialist movement in Britain. Eir kr or Eir kur Magn sson (1833 - 1913) was an Icelandic scholar who was Librarian at the University of Cambridge, taught Old Norse to William Morris, translated numerous Icelandic sagas into English in collaboration with him, and played an important role in the movement to study the history and literature of the Norsemen in Victorian England.
