Lýsing

Í greininni er fjallað um tengsl milli Egils sögu og skáldsögunnar sem bókmenntagreinar. Samkvæmt Torfa sprettur Egils saga ekki af munnlegri hefð, eins og oft er haldið fram, heldur frekar fullþroskuðum bókmenntahefðum. Horft er á þrjú sérkenni skáldsagna: a) tengsl tíma og staða í sögunni, b) raunsæiseinkenni sögunnar og c) þann stíl sem er notaður í Egilssögu. Torfi dregur af þessum atriðum þá ályktun að Egils saga geti að einhverju marki talist skáldsaga.

Chapter 19: æptu síðan heróp: “When Thorolfur decides to engage in an act of aggression against the king’s representative, it is clear that he has a choice. [...] This decision must be understood in light of the fact that he had declined Harald’s offer to leave his newly found domain in Northern Norway and become head of the royal guard” (p. 123).
