Bengtsson · 2 Read & download Read ✓ Röde Orm Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ater Viking Age Andalusia under Al Mansur Ibn Abi Aamir Denmark under Harold Bluetooth followed by the struggle between Eric the Victorious Sweyn Forkbeard of Denmark Ireland under Brian Boru En This is the most laughs I ve got out of a book dealing with pillaging raping burning slaving at a galley s oar duels to the death wars at sea or on land The fun starts from the very first chapter where it is dryly suggested that the reason the Northmen were so fond of going a viking to the ends of the known world every spring was to escape the sharp tongues and the fiery tempers of their beloved consorts After being cooped in with them for six long and cold winter months going out at sea must have been sheer blissThe hero of the story is Orm Tostesson the third son of a minor chieftain first met as an impetuous youth with a slight flaw in his character he is uickwitted skillful in the wielding of the spear and the battleaxe talented in poetry attractive to women and a bit of a hypochondriac as a result of overpampering at the hands of his motherThis long epic is the story of Red Orm and his three adventurous journeys at sea of the friendships he made the hardships and the killings the wealth he won and given away the wild parties and the dubious stories he liked to tell the wisdom and fairness that will make him a respected chieftain in his own rightEurope around the year 1000 was a merciless world with hundreds of kingdoms warring ceaselessly and the travels of Orm will take him and us from the shores of the Baltic Sea to the Caliphate of Cordoba under al Mansur to Ireland under Brian Boru to England under Ethelbert the Unready Denmark under Harald Bluetooth where Orm will find a wife and ultimately east to the Dniepr cataracts in the Kiev voyvodateThe interludes between the sea voyages are as just as interesting with memorable scenes at the Yule party in Jutland or at the Thing congregation in Smaland The passion for strong drink brawling wenching and storytelling coupled with the earthy dry and slightly risue humor made me think of classic literary sources like Chaucer Boccaccio or the Arabian Nights here a few examples of poetry from the bookMulled ale for the frozen manAnd mulled ale for the wearyFor mulled ale is the body s friendAnd makes the sick heart merryI heard WordOf bellied sailclothCreak of oarsAnd gold in EastlandThen I smelledA smell rememberedSalt of sprayAnd black pitched boat s keeland a word of advice from an Irish clown A wise man once he is past fifty does not befuddle his senses with strong drink nor make violent love in the cool spring night nor dance on his handsThe book deals also with the rise of Christianity in the Northern kingdoms and I believe the author did a great job of balancing his atheist inclinations and a sharp wit exposing the follies of the zealous priests with the respect shown for the good works the honest faith and the tolerant spirit of the true christians exemplified by father Willibald A live and let live message of tolerance that I consider still relevant todayThe English translation did a very good job of maintaining the style and the rhythm of the old norse sagas but using a language that feels modern and easy to follow The book was a page turner for meAccording to wikipediaThe Swedish writer Sven Stolpe reports that somebody asked author Bengtsson what intentions he had with The Long Ships To which Bengtsson responded that he had no particular intentions I just wanted to write a story that people could enjoy reading like The Three Musketeers or the OdysseyAs far as I am concerned Bengtsson was succesful in his endeavour and his epic deserves to be considered a literary classic I hope it will remain long in print so that future generations can read it and enjoy itedit for spelling
