Old Norse Made New

Old Norse Made NewA collection of essays entitled Old Norse Made New: Essays on the Post-Medieval Reception of Old Norse Literature and Culture, edited by David Clark and Carl Phelpstead, has been published by the Viking Society for Northern Research.

The essays investigate the reinvention of Old Norse-Icelandic literature and culture by writers in English from the eighteenth century to the present day, from Thomas Gray to Tolkien and beyond. You can find a presentation of the book here. I have contributed the essay: “Tolkien and Old Norse Antiquity: Real and Romantic Links in Material Culture” (see Publications).
