Egil's Saga
Translated by Hermann Pálsson
and Paul Edwards
Egil's Saga Link
I read this one just recently on the plane trips to and from Boston, when
I went back to visit my family. It was excellent. Written in a completely prose
translation, it is like reading any heroic novel, where the life of a single character
is chronicled from birth to death in the 3rd person omniscient.
