"Despite the scattered feel, Brown's undertaking is an important one. It's the first English-language book published on Snorri in 30 years, and for that reason alone, it will make useful reading for ardent students and dedicated armchair historians."
Brown (The Abacus and the Cross: The Story of the Pope Who Brought the Light of Science to the Dark Ages
, 2010, etc.) reexamines the life and work of Snorri Sturluson, the 13th-century Icelandic chieftain known as the "Homer of the North."
