THE SAGA OF THE VOLSUNGS With The Saga of Ragnar Lothbrok

by | Read by Jackson Crawford

Classics • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This is Jackson Crawford's second appearance as translator and audiobook narrator, following THE POETIC EDDA. Rendered with the mnemonic power distinctive in oral literature, the Icelandic saga is a unique experience in listening, a channeling of the ancient roots of storytelling. Crawford, a professor of Old Norse at the University of Colorado, narrates with an ease and comprehension that come from long acquaintance with his text and its more arcane features. The storyline is rich in character and action, and just as interesting for the serious listener is the half-hour introduction in which Crawford discusses family relationships and nomenclature, and fills in background and context.
