Quoting the Norwegian poet Hans E. Kinck he writes Po" ae sagan s& pannig fyrst og fremst 'karlamannasaga' (eins og norska ska'ldiu Kinck kemst ab orbi), pa hefur nun po fengie einn kafla m e b o6ru efni, en bab er patturinn af astum Bjarnar og Purloar. Pessar frasagnir hofou skilyroi til ab veroa romantiskar eba osiblegar eba hvorttveggja, en hvorugt hefur po oroib fra, yfir pao, sem vfsur Bjarnar, uppistaoa pattarins, gafu tilefni til. Although the saga is first and foremost a karlamannasaga, as the Norwegian poet Kinck puts it, it has nevertheless one episode with a different subject-matter--the love-story of Bjorn and frurl&r.
