The Saga of Gunnlaug the Worm-Tongue and Raven the Skald

Read by Phil Schempf

(4.4 stars; 29 reviews)

A tale from Iceland, 800 years ago.
In a dream of quarrels and death
The birth of fair Helga is told
Cross the north seas ventured for fame
At the call of kings, hearth bereft
Wounded pride, spawn'd of a sensed slight
When tongues fail, sharper blades prevail
Falcon soothes the cloak wrapt wound
Fair one pines and fades from the light. - Summary by Fritz (1 hr 23 min)

The story is very interesting and leaves you wondering what will happen. I did not like the "singing" too much but, nevertheless, it would likely have been done like that in the old days when being retold. I enjoyed it.
