  1. “[Poets] enjoyed a certain celebrity in Icelandic culture, so it just makes sense that they be disproportionately celebrated in the sagas.”

    “Poets were something of an export commodity in medieval Iceland.”

    Can I posit a third theory as to why poets show up so much in Icelandic sagas?

    The sagas were being written by poets.

    It makes sense that poets would write about what they know — their own lifestyles or the lifestyles they aspired to — just as many filmmakers make films about artists. How many Broadway musicals are there about Broadway? How many songs about singing? How many plays about theater?
