Looks like a lot of us read Beowulf as a school exam study, but frankly I know I was way too young to appreciate it back then, so I picked up this collection to tick off my list of 'revisits', and it turned out to be a fantastic choice. Of course, Beowulf is a remarkable and evocative piece of literature, but there's so much more in here, spanning almost a millennia of Norse folklore, gods and kings alike. Not for the faint hearted, but thoroughly worthwhile if you're looking for something a bit special. A real window into the north lands' ancient culture.
Nice assortment of medieval classics comprising Viking folklore and mythology from a bygone era comprising both prose and action/adventure tales. Handy links from the table of contents allow you to access any of the tales in any order you choose which was a definite plus. Image Gallery comprising 24 photos/illustrations was superb, some of my favorites including "Sigurd and Brunhild - Illustration by Harry George Theaker", "Kriemhild showing Gunther's head to Hagen" and a photo of a silver brooch imitating a coin of Edward the elder, c 920 among others. Considering having to pay at least a buck a piece to get these illustrated works piecemeal elsewhere I'd say this collection is a bargain and glad I made the purchase!
Great collection to have on my kindle for those times I'm waiting in various waiting rooms. Classic tales are not always easily translated but the translation is "adequate". For the price, these collections are a great addition to your Kindle library. I had read part of these in my youth and glad to have them available to me again virtually "at my fingertips".
