Prose stories, mostly concerning ancient Nordic history. Mostly written in Icelandic, in the Old Norse language
It's been a hard two years for teenagers and their families. Two high schoolers on how making music carries them through difficult times. And, "This Is Us" is coming to an end. So are other favorites, like "Black-ish," "Grace and Frankie," and "Better Caul Saul." What's next for TV? NPR TV critic Eric Deggans has a few thoughts.
With the death of Aud the Deep-Minded and the marriage of her son Olaf Feilan at the end of last episode, you'd expect that we'd be following up on the trajectory of Olaf's life in this one. Instead, we stick to the saga's structure and dive into the life of Olaf's nephew, Hoskuld, the son of Dala-Koll and Olaf's sister, Thorgerd. But don't worry, there's plenty of drama to delight you, even if the saga is still holding back on the bloodshed. In this episode, the widow Thorgerd finds true love, and a new baby, in the arms of a Norwegian. Will this complicate things for her first-born son Hoskuld? You bet it will. And speaking of Hoskuld. How will he handle the responsibilities of running his late father's farm and acting as a leading man in the district? If you guessed that he would sail off to Norway on a shopping trip to make some home improvements, you were right! But the real drama of this episode starts when Hoskuld brings home a bit more than lumber. What could he have brought back to Iceland that sends his wife Jorunn into a sock-flailing rage? Listen and find out! For those of you who stuck around to the end of the episode, here's a link to The Travels of Reverend Olafur Egilsson: The Story of the Barbary Corsair Raid on Iceland in 1627.

With all those dramatic volcanoes and glaciers, Iceland has become known as the Land of Fire and Ice. But we like to think of it as the Land of Legends and Poetry, a place to go adventuring with your extrovert pals, then curl up with a great book and a cozy sweater for some epic introverting. Literature is baked into Icelandic culture, starting with the Sagas and carrying through medieval warrior poets to today: The capital city of Reykjavík is a designated UNESCO City of Literature and home to both the Iceland Writers Retreat and the Iceland Noir Festival. When you're ready to explore the island, start in the capital for fancy cocktails, the vibrant food scene, and friendly locals. Then hit the road — the Ring Road — to circumnavigate the island and see fantastical sites along the way: volcanoes and lava fields, waterfalls and glaciers, puffins and horses with emo bangs, the black church and dramatic sea cliffs — plus northern lights, turquoise-colored hot springs, a troll or two, and wee elf houses. In this episode, we dig into the charming idiosyncrasies of the Icelandic language, get real about Vikings, and celebrate powerful Icelandic women. We also recommend five great books that transported us there on the page: The Island by Ragnar Jónasson How Iceland Changed the World by Egill Bjarnason The Glass Woman by Caroline Lea The Almost Nearly Perfect People by Michael Booth The Tricking of Freya by Christina Sunley For more on the books we recommend, plus the other cool stuff we talk about, visit show notes at http://strongsenseofplace.com/podcasts/2022-04-25-iceland Do you enjoy our show?

Did you know that Loki was a gender-bending God? In this episode of the Medieval Grad Podcast, Lucie Laumonier interviews Matthew Roby, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. Matthew's research looks at sex and gender in Old Norse and Icelandic sagas. There were many gender-bending characters in these texts, informing us of the gender representations and roles of Norse societies. The topic was so dense that we're making a two-part series about this – first, gender, and in the next episode, sex!

Laxdæla saga holds a special place in the world of medieval Icelandic literature. Of all the Sagas of Icelanders, Laxdæla saga is second only to Njáls saga in the number of surviving manuscripts, suggesting an evergreen enthusiasm and interest in the saga from the time of its composition to the 21st century. While we don't know for sure who wrote this incredible work of art, many have speculated that it might have been Snorri Sturluson himself. Others posit that it must have been one of Snorri's nephews, either Óláfr Þórðarson hvítaskáld or Sturla Þórðarson. Given the saga's interest in the lives of women, others have argued that it must be the work of an unknown female author. Whoever wrote Laxdæla saga, one thing is clear, it is among the most beloved and well-studied of all the Icelandic sagas. We're very excited to finally set sail on this journey through the saga with you. In this episode, we explore the first seven chapters of the saga, following the life of Auðr djúpúðga Ketilsdóttir, also known as Unnr. Listeners will recognize her as Auð the Deep-minded, daughter of Ketill flatnefur (Ketil Flatnose). She appears in or is referenced in many sagas, including Eyrbyggja saga, Njáls saga, Grettis saga, and Eiríks saga rauða. Here in Laxdæla saga, more than anywhere else, Auð emerges as the matriarch of Settlement Age Iceland's leading families. As you'll discover, Auð's long arm of influence extends well beyond Iceland. Join us as we celebrate the life of Auð and the start of Laxdæla saga! Jacob Foust, @skarphedin_illustrator, has provided us with this handy genealogy to help you keep track of the many characters. It can't possibly include everyone in the saga, of course, but it's a useful tool for mapping out the relationships between some of the saga's major characters.

Jurandir Filho, Katiucha Barcelos, Thiago Siqueira e Rogério Montanare conversam sobre as grandes sagas que conseguiram ter resultados positivos nos cinemas e séries. Por que é tão difícil transformar uma saga em filme? Será que é difícil condensar tantas histórias prévias no audiovisual? "O Senhor dos Anéis", "Harry Potter", "Duna", "Game of Thrones", "Uncharted", "Halo" e muitos outros são só alguns exemplos de sagas que foram para o audiovisual. O que é mais difícil de adaptar: livros, games ou HQs? || PATROCINADORES DO PODCAST - Assista HALO agora no Paramount+! 7 dias de graça pra conferir! https://paramountplus.com.br - Crie a sua loja on-line na Nuvemshop!
