Crisis Should Be The Inflection Point, Rather Than Darkness: Saxo ! http://newish.info/52215-crisis-should-be-the-inflection-point-rather-than-darkness-saxo
Lagertha in the Gesta Danorum
In case you wanted to read about Lagertha as reported in the historical sources! These are still legends, obviously. The text is my translation of the stories about Lagertha in Saxo’s Gesta Danorum, a 12th c. compilation of Danish ‘history’.
The Latin text I used is found here. There is an older English translation of the whole thing on Wikisource, but I was trying for slightly more modern English. It’s surprisingly hard to produce readable English when one spends all one’s time with Translationese, though — ah, the perils of being a Latin teacher? So, yeah, still not exactly colloquial. Sorry.
Warning: there is discussion of the rape of women in the text. There’s also lots of Lagertha being awesome!
