Even a Henchman Can Dream: Dreaming at the Margins in Brennu-Njáls saga

From the book Paranormal Encounters in Iceland 1150–1400

  • Christopher Crocker


Several prominent figures experience significant dreams at pivotal moments in the thirteenth-century Brennu-Njáls saga. This article, however, deals with dreams that appear at the social and/or narratological margins of the narrative. It examines how such dreams are used to bring different kinds of meaning to the text.
