A Store of Common Sense: Gnomic Theme and Style in Old Icelandic and Old English Wisdom Poetry

English | 1993 | ISBN: 0198119828 | 256 Pages | PDF | 21.7 MB

A Store of Common Sense is the first comparative study in English of Old Icelandic and Old English wisdom poetry. It examines problems of form, unity, and coherence, and how the genre responds to social change, both reflecting and shaping the thinking of the communities which originated it. Larrington's book explores the possibility of Christian influence on Norse texts and demonstrates the impact of Christian learning on the ancient pagan genre. The existence of a gnomic "key" in Norse and English narrative verse is also shown.
