I'm planning on doing my masters paper on some kind of aspect in the Icelandic sagas and was considering using either new historicism or an archetypal analysis. What do you'll think? Do you think I could mix a few theories?? I was also considering looking at the role of women in the sagas from a new historicist point of view. Well basically I'm really not sure how to approach it. So even minimal suggestions would be really helpful.
'A new historicist reading of the archetypes created with regard to women in icelandic sagas'
Do you think I could use that...im sure I may not be able to or does it make no sense at all?? What do you'll think
