Popular Romance in Iceland : The Women, Worldviews, and Manuscript Witnesses of Nítía
About this item
A late medieval Icelandic romance about the maiden-king of France, the Nítíða saga was extremely popular in its day and remained familiar in post-Reformation Iceland. It has not, however, received the comprehensive scholarly analysis it deserves, or that other Icelandic sagas have received. Sheryl McDonald Werronen corrects that here, offering a detailed study of the saga and its presentation of women and the Icelandic worldview, including questions of identity, gender, female solidarity, and the romance genre itself.
