Editorial Reviews

Review

"A charming introduction to Scandinavian Lore." -- Sam Smith, in The Journal (once 'of Contemporary Anglo-Scandinavian Poetry')

"Plenty of axe-swinging violence. The narratives value the humanvirtues of cleverness and competition." -- Matthew Rettino, The Vinciolo Journal

"Resplendent with sweeping tales and shield-beating rhythm and meter." -- Liz Ratajczak Ratel

From the Author

The choice of ballads to include in Warrior Lore was inspired by the remnants of Norse myth and Germanic legend. Some of the oldest surviving ballads are included here. These ballads are structured basically around rhyme and metre, similarly to modern verse and songs, and with this translation I have aimed to make versions of the ballads that can work in English. I have avoided archaisms in the translation, and have tried to reflect the simple and timeless language of the original ballads.
