Widely considered as compiled by Icelandic scholar and historian Snorri Sturluson around the year 1220, "The Prose Edda" contains a euhemerized Prologue followed by three tales: the 'Gylfaginning', the story of the creation and destruction of the world of the Norse gods; the 'Sk ldskaparm l', consists of a dialogue between gir, a god associated with the sea, and Bragi, a skaldic god; and the 'H ttatal', a collection of Old Norse poetry including original compositions by Snorri Sturluson. This classic collection of Old Norse myths is one of the most important of the Icelandic eddas and a must read for fans and scholars of Norse mythology.
