Icelandic literature - Icelandic literature - The Icelanders’ sagas: The Icelanders’ sagas (also called family sagas) are about heroes who supposedly lived in the 10th and 11th centuries. Their origins are unclear, and it is debatable whether they are faithful records of history. One theory has suggested that they were composed in the 11th century and transmitted orally until written down.

      Saga, in medieval Icelandic literature, any type of story or history in prose, irrespective of the kind or nature of the narrative or the purposes for which it was in this general sense, the term applies to a wide range of literary works, including those of hagiography (biographies of saints), historiography, and secular fiction in a variety of modes. The Íslendingasögur/Sagas of Icelanders book series by multiple authors includes books Hrafnkels Saga Freysgoda, Greenland Saga: The Lost Norse Colony, Bandamanna Saga: Translations and Icelandic Text, and several more.
