Vikings and the Vikings Essays on Television's History Channel Series

Heftet / 2019 / Engelsk
This essay collection is a wide-ranging exploration of Vikings, the television series that has successfully summoned the historical world of the Norse people for modern audiences to enjoy. From a range of critical viewpoints, the essays explore the ways in which past and present representations of the Vikings converge in the show's richly textured dramatization of the rise and fall of Ragnar Loobrok-and the exploits of his heirs-creating what many viewers label a "true" representation of the age. From the show's sources in both saga literature and Victorian revival, to its engagement with contemporary concerns regarding gender, race and identity, via setting, sex, society and more, this first book-length study of the History Channel series appeals to fans of the show, Viking enthusiasts, and anyone with an interest in medievalist representation in the 21st century.

These scholarly essays on many aspects of Viking life and society are fascinating in their own right. The fact that they embellish, underscore and often validate my Viking drama is actually deeply moving."-Michael Hirst, creator of Vikings
