The Story of the Volsungs
(Volsunga Saga),
with Excerpts from the Poetic Edda.

Originally written in Icelandic (Old Norse) in the thirteenth
century A.D., by an unknown hand.  However, most of the material
is based substantially on previous works, some centuries older.
A few of these works have been preserved in the collection of
Norse poetry known as the "Poetic Edda".

The text of this edition is based on that published as "The Story
of the Volsungs", translated by William Morris and Eirikr
Magnusson (Walter Scott Press, London, 1888).
