Snorri Sturluson


Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179-1241)

“Although we have been told various stories and have heard about other deeds, it seems to us better that our account should later be expanded than that it should have to be emended.”

  • From King Harald’s Saga (chapter 36), within the Heimskringla by Snorri Sturlusson, translated by Magnus Magnusson and Hermann Pálsson (Penguin Classics, 1966, 2005).
