This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.
Great! That is one of my favourite pieces in OE. I have considered translating it into Old Norse (minus any attempt at alliteration).
The same battle is in prose form in Egil's saga from the point of view of a couple of Norse mercenaries (Egil and his brother, Thorolf).
What inspired you?
