When taken as the great story it is, Burnt Njal is essential reading. Northern European literature has long faced prejudice, and marginalization at the hands of Mediterranean focused germaniphobic bias. Burnt Njal itself closes under the thumb of this bias, with heavy handed and obnoxious nods toward the religion of Rome/5(19).

Njal's Saga is epic tale of toxic masculinity spiraling out of control as a 50 year blood feud builds to greater and greater acts of vengeance over insults like gifts of silk and manliness being called into question.

Many people are murdered and an entire family is burnt down in their home.4/5. The Story of Burnt Njal Hardcover – December 1, See all 4 formats and editions Hide other formats and editions.
