Abstract

This article compares the world views in two sagas about Tristram and Isönd-one from Norway and composed in 1226, the other from Iceland and composed in the fourteenth century. The former situates King Mark's chivalric court in the midst of giants. The latter lacks both the missionary zeal and the giants; people had become more similar, and the geographical horizon had expanded.
