The acknowledged masterpiece of the Nobel Prize-winning Norwegian novelist Sigrid Undset, Kristin Lavransdatter has never been out of print in this country since its first publication in 1927. Its story of a woman's life in fourteenth-century Norway has kept its hold on generations of readers, and the heroine, Kristin--beautiful, strong-willed, and passionate--stands with the world's great literary figures.
Volume 1, The Bridal Wreath, describes young Kristin's stormy romance with the dashing Erlend Nikulausson, a young man perhaps overly fond of women, of whom her father strongly disapproves.
"Sigrid Undset's trilogy embodies more of life, seen understanding and seriously...than any novel since Dostoievsky's Brothers Karamazov." --Commonweal"No other novelist has bodied forth the medieval world with such richness and fullness." --New York Herald Tribune
