,Anders als alle anderen Egils sagas‘. Zum Konnex von Einzelverfasserschaft und anderer Ästhetik im spätvormodernen Island


Rohrbach, Lena (2023). ,Anders als alle anderen Egils sagas‘. Zum Konnex von Einzelverfasserschaft und anderer Ästhetik im spätvormodernen Island. In: Gropper, Stefanie; Pawlak, Anna; Wolkenhauer, Anja; Zirker, Angelika. Plurale Autorschaft : Ästhetik der Co-Kreativität in der Vormoderne. Berlin, Boston: De Gruyter, 301-322.

Abstract

In the long-lasting Icelandic manuscript culture, the production and reception of sagas was situated in a narrative tradition characterised by the absence of notions of an author genius and a high degree of mouvance and variance: from the 13th to the 19th century Icelandic saga literature was transmitted anony-mously and in handwritten form in ever new retextualisations, accompanied by reiterating changes of medium (oral / written) and genre (prose / verse). It is therefore less the absence than the more or less sudden appearance of attributions of authorship for these kinds of texts in the course of the 18th century that is remarkable in the Icelandic case. In a first generation of Icelandic literary histories and philological treatises in this period, not only new saga narratives, but also new versions of medieval texts were ascribed to individual authors.
