Product description

Review

". . . the translation may indeed be regarded as the crowning achievement of a great scholar." * Scandinavian-American Bulletin *

From the Back Cover

The Poetic Edda comprises a treasure trove of mythic and spiritual verse holding an important place in Nordic culture, literature, and heritage. Its tales of strife and death form a repository, in poetic form, of Norse mythology and heroic lore, embodying both the ethical views and the cultural life of the North during the late heathen and early Christian times.
