Skaldic Verse and the Poetics of Saga Narrative is a detailed reading of a series of sophisticated medieval narratives, the Old Norse-Icelandic sagas. It shows how saga authors achieved a wide range of stylistic and psychological effects through the interplay of prose and verse: bringing history to life, presenting fiction as if it were history, and providing saga characters with dramatic dialogue and strange soliloquies.
