Saxo Grammaticus (Volume I). Gesta Danorum: The History of the Danes.
Oxford University Press, 2015. 880p. Hardback. Series: Oxford Medieval Texts. At last the whole of Saxo's historical work, covering the reigns of Danish kings from well before the birth of Christ to AD 1187, is presented to English readers in a convincing Latin text with an English version on facing pages ... The difficulty of translating so mannered and verbose a Latinist into modern English is acknowledged in Fisher's introduction, and his remarkable performance in the 1979 translation is brought to a worthy conclusion in this. The right men, the right method and the right publisher combine to produce a Saxo for all varieties of medievalist.
