How to use Atli in a sentence
Gudrun is nominally reconciled with Atli, but in secret plans revenge for the death of her brothers.
Gunnar refuses Atli's command to reveal the hiding-place of the hoard, bidding them bring to him the heart of Hogni.
He stayed there for the night, and in the morning went out to work with Atli's men, and toiled as if he had hands everywhere.
Atli made it a condition that there should be no sentence of banishment either from the district or the country.
So he continued all the summer; Atli took no notice of him, but allowed him his food, for he was pleased with the man's work.
