The present edition of Egils saga provides an annotated text of the saga for English-reading students who wish to read the saga in its original language. The volume offers a revised text of the saga based on a fresh reading of the chief manuscript, Möðruvallabok (AM 132 fol., Reykjavík), a fourteenth-century collection of Sagas of Icelanders. This text reflects the characteristic word-forms of the manuscripts and has explanatory notes in English and a vocabulary list that has been comprehensively glossed.
