Publication: From Oral Prosimetrum to Viking Metal
Updated: Mar 10
The latest issue of ARV - Nordic Yearbook of Folklore contains my short piece on the very long transmission and adaptation history of the lost saga of Hrómundur (Romund, Ramund – you name him). It spans almost 1000 years: from medieval prosimetrum (?) recited in 1119 at the wedding feast in Reykhólar in Iceland to 2020, when the Faroese viking metal band Týr performed their adaptation of the story in Tórshavn in the Faroe Islands.
I have just received a hard copy of the volume by mail, but you can read „From Oral Prosimetrum to Viking Metal” in open access here.
