Words

Working on my dissertation, which is about Þórðar saga hreðu, has redoubled my skepticism towards narrative and words as any sort of reflection on reality. Instead the more I work on it, the more I see the way words try to distort reality. After months and months working on this thing, I can honestly say I would be very grateful, very glad, to have my faith in words restored, if it ever could be.
