Forfatterintrusjon i Grettis saga og paralleller i Sturlas verker
2017 (Norwegian)In: Scripta Islandica: Isländska Sällskapets Årsbok, ISSN 0582-3234, E-ISSN 2001-9416, Vol. 68, p. 123-151Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

For a long time, Sturla Þórðarson (1214–1284) has been considered the author of Grettis saga Ásmundarsonar, or at least some parts of the saga (cf. Sigurður Nordal 1938). Recent studies that deal with Sturla’s authorship of Eyrbyggja saga and Þorskfirðinga saga strengthen this theory (cf. Elín Bára Magnúsdóttir 2015a, 2015b: 87–127). They demonstrate many similarities between these sagas and Grettis saga regarding vocabulary and style, and that includes linguistic similarities with Sturla’s literary works, Íslendinga saga and Hákonar saga Hákonar­sonar. These observations call for further research into the authorship of Grettis saga and demonstrate the need for detailed thematic linguistic analyses. The present article explores author intrusion in Grettis saga and compares it to Sturla’s works and other sagas of Icelanders. Despite the fact that Grettis saga and Sturla’s works belong to different genres within the saga literature, the present study reveals many similarities between them with regard to author intrusion, especially in source references. The results of this study thus support the probability of Sturla’s authorship of the saga.
