La "matière du Nord" : sagas légendaires et fiction dans la littérature islandaise en prose du XIIIe siècle by Torfi H. Tulinius( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in French and Italian and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this work is to redefine the role of a group of novelistic texts, the so-called formaldarsogur, in the development of prose narrative literature in thirteenth century Iceland. Despite received opinion, it seems that the genre appeared at the latest in the early century and not near its end. This modifies our thinking about the origin and nature of the most famous and remarkable texts of the period, the sagas of Icelanders, since their literary and fictional characteristics become easier to explain if one postulates the prior appearance of formaldarsogur. After presenting arguments of a philological and historical kind in favor of an early development of these sagas, six are examined closely with the help of recent techniques of literary analysis. The aim is twofold: to show the narrative sophistication of these sagas and to bring to light their deeper subjects. Once that is achieved, it becomes possible to link the saga to historical reality in Iceland in the thirteenth century and to the mentality of its inhabitants. It appears that, despite the fictions and improbable nature of these narratives, they are not less a witness of their times than more realistic works. In the last part, we try to use the same approach to propose an interpretation of what is probably the earliest saga of Icelanders, Egils saga. The analysis shows the elaborate construction of the saga, which is then interpreted in light of what we know about the period of composition an about the life of its presumed author. The result is a new interpretation of the saga and an attempt to penetrate the mystery of the development of such a unique literary genre as the sagas of Icelanders, by studying their multiple links to their times

Early Icelanders EQ02( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 23 documents is about the Early Icelanders and covers the time span from the first Norse settlement in Iceland around 874 A.D. to Iceland's incorporation into the kingdom of Norway in approximately 1262 A.D. The major focus is on the Commonwealth Period from 930 to 1262 A.D. Much of the cultural data gathered for this period comes from the analysis and interpretation of a number of Icelandic sagas written primarily in the thirteenth century. The most comprehensive study of the social, economic, and political changes taking place in Medieval Iceland over a four hundred year period is The dynamics of medieval Iceland by Durrenberger. This study begins with the first Norse settlement in Iceland around 874 A.D. and ends with the incorporation of Iceland into the kingdom of Norway in 1264 A.D. Fourteen of these documents were originally published in: From sagas to society, edited by Gísli Pálsson

Désir et passion dans l'œuvre dramatique de Jóhann Sigurjónsson by Fern Nevjinsky( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of my research is to propose a psychoanalytic interpretation of Jóhann Sigurjónsson's dramatic works. Works of art support the true preoccupations of their author and concern themselves with universal feelings and especially desires and passions as primal motivations. I have undertaken an analysis of the relationship between passions and generally literary writing in the works of Jóhann Sigurjónsson. In order to do that, I have first investigated the relative role of the historical and cultural context of the plays. By means of an accurate structural analysis, the main topics are then drawn from the text. On the surface, all the characters are excessive and weak. Consequently passions, here considered as an "avatar" of the narcissistic organization of the personality, result in breakdown, psychotic disease or death. Narcissistic regression shows that the passion is dependant on a domination of the death instincts. This relationship between the passions and the various expressions of the death instincts appears as the final buttress that stands up to further interpretation
