Egil Skallagrimsson


Egil Skallagrimsson (10th century semi-mythical Viking-poet)

“Let us make our drawn swords glitter,
you who stain wolf’s teeth with blood;
now that the fish of the valleys thrive,
let us perform brave deeds.”

  • Egil’s Saga (recorded c. 13th century possibly by Snorri Sturluson), translated by Bernard Scudder. New York: Penguin Classics, 2004 edition.
