Description

The collection of Norse-Icelandic mythological and heroic poetry known as the "Poetic Edda" contains the greater narratives of the creation of the world and the coming of Ragnarok, the Doom of the Gods. Since the rediscovery of the "Poetic Edda" in the 17th century, its poetry has fascinated artists as diverse as Thomas Gray, Richard Wagner, and Jorge Luis Borges. This complete translation includes a scholarly introduction, notes, a genealogy of the gods and giants, and an index of names.show more
