Grettir (rhymes with “better”) is a pseudonym/nickname I picked up quite a while ago.
Grettir Ásmundarson was the hero of the 14th-century Icelandic saga entitled The Saga of Grettir the Strong. In the introduction to his 1914 translation, G.A. Hight wrote the following:
“The reader comes to know Grettir as a living being of flesh and blood: the man of strength and courage and essential good nature whose natural hastiness of temper turns to a rash impatience, blighting his life and condemning him to long years of outlawry. He finds the loneliness and desolation all the harder to bear because he, the strongest and bravest man in the whole of Iceland, is nevertheless afraid of the dark.”
But I vigorously deny that there are any similarities between me and my namesake. For one thing, I’m not a man of “essential good nature.” Especially not in the morning.
