The poems of the Poetic Edda have waited a long time for a modern English translation that would do them justice. Here it is at last (Odin be praised!) and well worth the wait. These amazing texts from a 13th-century Icelandic manuscript are of huge historical, mythological, and literary importance, containing the lion's share of information that survives today about the gods and heroes of pre-Christian Scandinavians, their unique vision of the beginning and end of the world, etc.

Hail Odin! I've been waiting for this audio book to come out and I have to say I'm glad I purchased it Jackson Crawford is a very knowledgeable professor which makes this book even more creditable and worth the buy I'm only half way through it and will probably relisten to it again since something's escape me over all good quality and good tone I've already shared this book with two others, skal!
