Medievalists.net’s Featured Book: Old Norse – Old Icelandic

The Medievalists.net Monthly Book Selection for June is Old Norse – Old Icelandic: Concise Introduction to the Language of the Sagas, by Jesse Byock and Randall Gordon.

Answering the need for a modern Old Norse primer, Old Norse – Old Icelandic is designed for self-learning, class teaching, and remote instruction. The straightforward, incremental approach requires no previous foreign language knowledge. The book provides everything necessary to read the sagas. The 17 self-contained lessons are short and supply all necessary vocabulary, grammar, and explanations. Each lesson is built around original passages from Icelandic sagas and Norse mythological sources, so that students read original material from the first lesson. Exercises in each lesson greatly assist the beginner and those more advanced.
