THE SAGA OF GISLI THE OUTLAW
FOUR SHAKESPEARE PLAYS

Gísla Saga (The Saga of Gísli) is a work in Icelandic from the 12th-13th century, chronicling events that took place in the 900s. Icelandic sagas typically told of complex blood feuds, the shackles of fate, gruesome deaths, and fantastical heroism: Gísla Saga is no exception.
