B5: Narrative (self-)reflection in the Icelandic family sagas

Project B5 explores a common feature of the Icelandic family sagas: narratorial comments that point to a reflection of intratextuality, intertextuality and referentiality. Although they are (at a first glance) not very exciting, these comments give insight into the kind of aesthetic reflections as well as social conditions and connexions of narrating in the vernacular. These heretofore under-researched comments will be systematically collected, contextualised and analysed with regard to narrative (self-)reflection in the Icelandic family sagas; they thus form a central contribution to the reconstruction of an early modern aesthetics.
