The Arthur of the North, superbly edited and with substantial contributions by Marianne E. Kalinke, is a treasure trove of solid, stimulating, and insightful articles on Arthurian romance. In ten chapters, an international team of eight experts on the topic treat not only translations of courtly romances and indigenous narratives composed in the wake of the translations, but also Arthurian influence on other medieval Scandinavian literary works. Much ground, many centuries, and a huge geographical area from Iceland in west to the realm of the Rus' in the east are covered in this fascinating volume, which is a joy to read and a pleasure to learn from.' Kirsten Wolf, Professor and Torger Thompson Chair of Scandinavian Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison. 'This valuable book rescues the Arthurian narratives of medieval Scandinavia from their sometimes marginalized status in the field of Old Norse-Icelandic studies. A team of seven expert and experienced scholars have assembled ten chapters covering all facets of these texts with an admirably up-to-date and well balanced account of both the philological and literary issues, including such underpublicized matters as Arthurian echoes in the Icelandic sagas, the late ballad versions, and the Slavic analogues. The book will serve both as a summation of earlier scholarship and as a platform for future research. It is full and detailed enough to serve scholars and accessible enough to appeal to general readers.' Theodore M. Andersson, Professor Emeritus, Indiana University.
