Abstract

It is sometimes thought that the Icelandic sagas inspired the hard-boiled prose of Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961). Although there is nothing to show that he read translations of these, I shall argue that a motif in the tale told by Pilar about her husband’s role in a series of executions in For Whom the Bell Tolls, chapter 10, is ultimately derived from the climax of Jómsvíkinga saga. 1 Let us see the comparison, then the suggested link.
