    The article offers criticism on Brother Robert's translation of the book "Tristrams saga ok �söndar," written by Anglo-Norman poet Thomas. The author looks at evidence provided by the Carlisle fragment, and suggests that scholars consider the implications of the scene, where lovers Tristan and Queen �sönd drank the love potion, for the debate on the treatment of love by Icelandic saga authors.
