De saga van Grettir * Marcel Otten (translator) (Ambo 2003 * isbn 9026317905)

Another Icelandic saga translated in Dutch by Marcel Otten. Just as the earlier released translations of Njal, Volsüngen and Edda a wonderfull translation with a foreword of professor M.C. van den Toorn and geneologies and an index at the end. This more storytelling (historical?) saga speaks about Grettir who is an utter and complete bastard. After banishments and other punishments, he receives the ultimate punishment: outlawel. A nice book again and there is plenty left to translate, so more will follow hopefully.
Also available in English of course, just check Amazon.
