Star Wars as an Icelandic Saga: The Entire Saga (in English) in One Blog Post
Friends, it is a dark and stormy night with the chill of winter already in the air. Thus, I bring you a story worthy of a cozy night in as you mull mead over the fire and read aloud to any friends, housemates, or kinsmen who may gather for this epic tale. This blogger, this mad, beautiful, legendary person, has retold the entirety of Star Wars as an Icelandic Saga, complete with antiquated storytelling conventions, patronymic names, and Icleandicized awesomeness. If ever the word epic were earned, it would be here.
I could give some spiel about the politics surrounding cultural history, academic snobbishness towards epic/oral literature and mythology, and similar attitudes towards genre fiction to justify how this relates to intellectual freedom or banned books, but screw it. Epic needs no explanation. Enjoy, good readers. I leave you with this:
Ek em Jéði som mín faðr áðr mig.
