The Arthur of the North : the Arthurian legend in the Norse and Rus' realms by Marianne E Kalinke( )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arthur of the North is the first book-length study of the Arthurian literature that was translated from French and Latin into Old Norse-Icelandic in the thirteenth century, which has been preserved mostly in Icelandic manuscripts, and which in early modern times inspired the composition of narrative poems and chapbooks in Denmark, Iceland, and Norway, chiefly of the Tristan legend. The importation of Arthurian literature in the North, primarily French romances and lais, is indebted largely to the efforts of King Hákon Hákonarson (r. 1217-63) of Norway, who commissioned the translation of Thomas de Bretagne's Tristan in 1226 and subsequently several Arthurian romances by Chrétien de Troyes and a number of Breton lais. The translations are unique in that the French metrical narratives were rendered in prose, the traditional form of narrative in the North. Only one work was translated into verse in Norway, namely Chrétien de Troyes's Yvain, which was commissioned by Queen Eufemia (d. 1312), the German wife of the Norwegian king Hákon Magnússon (r. 1299-1319), and which is the only Arthurian romance in Old Swedish. The earliest Arthurian texts to have been translated antedate King Hákon's program of translation, however. The Prophetiae Merlini in Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia regum Britanniae were rendered by the Icelandic monk Gunnlaugr Leifsson in Merlínússpá, around the year 1200. Presumably at the same time, or a little later, Geoffrey's Historia was also translated in Iceland and entitled Breta sögur. The book concludes with a chapter on Arthurian literature in the Rus' area, precisely East Slavic, with a focus on the Belarusian Tryscan
The Book of Reykjahólar : the last of the great medieval legendaries by Marianne E Kalinke( )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study Marianne E. Kalinke examines what may be considered the last great medieval legendary, the Book of Reykjaholar, produced on the very eve of the Reformation. The significance of this legendary resides in its preserving in Icelandic translation a group of otherwise unattested medieval Low German saints' lives. Kalinke presents a literary analysis of the Reykjaholar compilation, demonstrating what kind of sources the translator used and how he collected, combined, and adapted these texts to suit his Icelandic audience. The book also offers stylistic, thematic, and comparative analyses of the legends." "A number of these Christian myths are apocryphal, and some transmit folktales and romances, such as the legend of the hairy anchorite (St John Chrysostom), the tale of the search for the highest king (St Christopher), the tale of the grateful lion (St Jerome), the tale of the dragon-slayer (St George), and the story of the holy sinner (Gregorius peccator). The legends belong to the vast corpus of German hagiography, yet the currency of these particular versions is documented today only by virtue of their inclusion in this Icelandic legendary. The book opens with a survey of the development of German hagiography, goes on to a discussion of the religious and intellectual climate in early sixteenth-century Iceland, and follows with a consideration of the legendary's Low German sources and its production by one of the wealthiest Icelanders of the time, Bjorn Thorleifsson of Reykjaholar."--Jacket

Stories set forth with fair words : the evolution of medieval romance in Iceland by Marianne E Kalinke( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an investigation of the foundation and evolution of romance in Iceland. The narrative type arose from the introduction of French narratives into the alien literary environment of Iceland and the acculturation of the import to indigenous literary traditions. The study focuses on the oldest Icelandic copies of three chansons de geste and four of the earliest indigenous romances, both types transmitted in an Icelandic codex from around 1300. The impact of the translated epic poems on the origin and development of the Icelandic romances was considerable, yet they have been largely neglected by scholars in favour of the courtly romances. This study attests the role played by the epic poems in the composition of romance in Iceland, which introduced the motifs of the aggressive female wooer and of Christian-heathen conflict. --
