Most widely held works by Lee M Hollander
The Poetic Edda by Lee M Hollander( Book )

49 editions published between 1928 and 2016 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Poetic Edda comprises a treasure trove of mythic and spiritual verse holding an important place in Nordic culture, literature, and heritage. Its tales of strife and death form a repository, in poetic form, of Norse mythology and heroic lore, embodying both the ethical views and the cultural life of the North during the late heathen and early Christian times. Collected by an unidentified Icelander, probably during the twelfth or thirteenth century, The Poetic Edda was rediscovered in Iceland in the seventeenth century by Danish scholars. Even then its value as poetry, as a source of historical information, and as a collection of entertaining stories was recognized. This meticulous translation succeeds in reproducing the verse patterns, the rhythm, the mood, and the dignity of the original in a revision that Scandinavian Studies says 'may well grace anyone's bookshelf.'"--Publisher's description
Njál's saga by Njall Stefansson( Book )

33 editions published between 1955 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in the late thirteenth century, Njal's saga is the most powerful and popular of the great Icelandic family sagas and teems with memorable and complex characters such as Gunnar of Hlidarendi, a great warrior with an aversion to killing, the Iago-like Mord Valgardsson, and the wise and prescient Njal himself. Despite its distance from us in time and place, Njal's Saga explores perennial human problems : from failed marriages to divided loyalties, from the law's inability to curb human passions to the terrible consequences when decent men and women are swept up in a tide of violence beyond their control

"Beginning with the dim prehistory of the mythical gods and their descendants, Heimskringla recounts the history of the kings of Norway through the reign of Olaf Haraldsson, who became Norway's patron saint.

Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
The skalds, a selection of their poems by Lee M Hollander( Book )

32 editions published between 1945 and 1989 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Old Norse antiquity has come down to us the large body of verse which the skalds--or court poets of Norway and Iceland--composed to signalize a feat of arms or an act of generosity by their lords. The skalds were usually witty and ingenious young gentlemen of noble birth, who often composed their verses extemporaneously. Many such verses were preserved in the great sagas. Lee M. Hollander has here translated many of these colorful but complicated poems and has provided an excellent understanding of the vivid personalities, important historical events, religious mythology, and folklore of the period. Chapters are devoted to the life and works of more than a dozen of the greatest skalds. This book will be of great interest to students of comparative literature as well as to the general reader"--Back cover
