Abstract

This presentation examines two Icelandic Sagas, "Thidrandi Whom the Goddesses Slew" and "Hen-Thorir", for possible answers to the question, "why do bad things happen to good people?" It also explores how the perspectives of Medieval Icelanders, on this topic, are still relevant today. Dr. Cooper-Rompato (English Department) would like to recommend this paper as part of a panel on medieval literature.
