Summary of Gunnar's Daughter Summary of Gunnar's Daughter Reviews for Gunnar's Daughter An Excerpt from Gunnar's Daughter
Written in 1909, this swift and compelling tale of a female avenger from the Saga Age was Undset's first novel with a medieval setting. Unlike most of the Viking-inspired art of its period, it is not a historical romance but addresses questions as troublesome in Undset's own time--and in ours--as they were in the Saga Age: rape and revenge, civil and domestic violence.
