Three warriors from the Goryo Dynasty, Poong-Chun, Deok-Ki and Seol-Rang pledge to fight for the impoverished people under the incompetent king and they lead a riot. However, due to Deok-Ki's betrayal, Poong-Chun dies and Seol-Rang, as stricken by guilt, flees with Poong-Chun's sword and his infant daughter, Hong-Yi.
18 years later, the female warrior is now blind and she trains the young woman in martial arts. Soon Seol-Rang reveals that she is the one who killed her parents. Hong-yi falls in utter shock, leaves Seol-Rang and plans to get revenge on both her and Deok-Ki, by now the most powerful man in the country. Soon blood will be shed.

Tools of Literacy: The Role of Skaldic Verse on Icelandic Textual Culture of the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries by Gudrun Nordal
English | 1 Oct. 2000 | ISBN: 0802047890 | 432 Pages | PDF | 22 MB

Tools of Literacy is a thorough and ground-breaking examination of thirteenth-century skaldic verse or dr ttkv tt, the literary production of Iceland in the thirteenth century, and of the textual culture which nurtured the poets. Nordal demonstrates the connection between thirteenth-century skaldic verse and the formal study of grammatica in schools, and establishes that skaldic verse was treated much like a Nordic equivalent of classic texts.
