The article explores Icelandic Nobel prize-winning author Halldór Laxness’ changing attitude towards the medieval saga heritage through the early part of his career, culminating in an important and controversial editorial project in the 1940s. The article is now available both in print and in open access online (click here for a paginated pdf version of the article).
