Synopsis:

This is the story of the rivalry between Bjorn, Hitdoelakappi and Poror Kolbeinsson over Poror's wide Oddny, leading ultimately to the death of Bjorn in a heroic last stand against 24 attackers led by Poror. The book contains full critical and explanatory materials of one of Iceland's oldest sagas. A full introduction surveys the saga genre, and investigates its relationship with other European literature.
