"Kormaks saga is one of the Icelanders' sagas. It tells of the 10th century Icelandic poet, Kormkr Ogmundarson, and Steingerdr, the love of his life. The saga preserves a significant amount of poetry attributed to Kormakr, much of it dealing with his love for Steingerdr. Though the saga is believed to have been among the earliest sagas composed it is well preserved. The unknown author clearly relies on oral tradition and seems unwilling to add much of his own or even to fully integrate the different accounts he knew of Kormakr. Often he does little more than briefly set the scenes for Kormakr's stanzas.
