Links to all of the
sagas, many in English translations. Read as much as you find
interesting of one of them, if possible parts describing feud or
court scenes–I suggest some possible chapters. Of particular
interest are Njal
saga (Chapters 7-8, 21-24, 36-40, 56, 65, 72-76, 105), Hrafnkell
Saga of the Confederates (Chapters 5-10).
