Product description

Review

Jackson Crawford (translator of The Poetic Edda and soon be released, (Sept. 2017), The Saga of the Volsungs) has an active and popular Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXCxNFxw6iq-Mh4uIjYvufg An excellent and entertaining work that succeeds in achieving its intended purpose: to create an accessible and readable English translation of the Poetic Edda . Crawford's knowledge of and passion for the topic is clear throughout, and he strikes an excellent balance between approachability and authenticity. I will most certainly be using this translation when I teach Norse mythology in the future and will recommend it to anyone looking for an approachable introduction to the subject. -- Natalie M. Van Deusen, University of Alberta, in Scandinavian-Canadian Studies
