Fornnordiska Sagor - Första samlingen

Fornnordiska Sagor – Första samlingen

Ofta används begreppet fornnordiska sagor om hela vår nordiska sagoskatt men man skiljer egentligen på Kungasagor (som avhandlar de norska kungarna, som tex Snorres Heimskringla), Islänningasagor (som är isländska släktkrönikor) och Fornnordiska sagor. De sistnämnda kallas allt oftare för Fornaldrasagor just för att de inte ska blandas ihop med de övriga. Hittills har ingen komplett samling fornaldrasagor givits ut på svenska, men denna bok är tänkt att bli den första i en serie. Dels blir det äldre översättningar och dels nya översättningar av sagor som tidigare inte funnits på svenska. Några sagor räknas ibland både som tex fornaldrasaga och kungasaga, och tas därför med just för att vi ska få ihop en så komplett samling som möjligt.
