Eiriksdottir A Tale of Dreams and Luck

Summary Eiriksdottir A Tale of Dreams and Luck ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Joan Clark ↠ 6 Summary characters Ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Joan Clark Freydis daughter of the great Nordic explorer Eirik the Red seeks to gain fortune and independence by leadin. I imagine you could read Eiriksdottir by Joan Clark in one of two ways as a rather dry historical fantasy novel or as a very lively history lesson This book is her fictionalization of one of the Viking journeys to North America during the time of Leif the Lucky undertaken by his sister Freydis about 15 years after his own historic journey What the author tries to do with this story is present it with a mixture of styles It resembles the Viking Sagas I ve read the translated Egil s Saga in that it dryly narrates from one event to another whether it be grisly horror heroic feat daily chore or the matter of fact musings of the characters It is also like a history textbook in that much of the events of the novel chronicle the day to day efforts to merely survive in their temporary home in Leifsbudir modern day L Anse Aux Meadows Newfoundland it seems incredibly well researched and plausible from my point of view intended to exhaustively show how Scandanavians of that time lived This is the book s greatest weakness and greatest strength I had an intense interest in reading up on the Greenland Vikings ever since reading Jared Diamond s Collapse his non fiction study of collapsed civilizations in which the Greenland Viking settlement was well showcased so I ate up Joan Clark s every description of how they wove wool built their houses fished fought thought about the world etc I see how this could be dreadfully boring to someone who s not interested in the minutae of Viking life It fits in well with this grand man versus environment survival tale which ends without giving too much away as a capital T Tragedy The main character Freydis is a difficult woman and a complex character who I think was well developed Her attitudes seem to fit with her time and culture yet we can relate to her desires and her capability of leading the expedition like a modern woman I can relate to her dissatisfaction with everything dull and poor in her world and join in her yearning to better herself through the goods gathered in Vinland One of the most striking things about this novel is the interlude halfway through the book where it is suddenly told from the point of view of the Christian slaves the Vikings brought with them From this point on the Vikings are no longer deserving of our sympathy and the dread of terrible things to come starts to creep into the story There is another fantastical departure that Clark uses to close off the book that again puts everything that s happened into proper perspective and provides a perhaps Christian moral to the tale of this amoral group of barbarians I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I have a great appreciation for the craft which Joan Clark used to weave all its elements together It is somewhat horrifying to read through 300 pages of largely unembellished prose and then have a slaughter narrated to you in much the same tone I would recommend this book to anyone who isn t scared of historical fiction or to anyone that is fascinated by the Viking way of life maybe even fantasy fans
