the dictionary of norse mythology


SAXO GRAMMATICUS Danish scholar of the 13th century who wrote gesta danorum, a multi-volume, partly mythical history of the Danes. In it Saxo recounts many myths of denmark including that of Hamlet and norway. Saxo's approach to the myths and the people in them was rather harsh and unsympathetic compared to that of the Icelandic writer snorri sturluson.
