The Poetic Edda
- Stories of the Norse Gods and Heroes
- By: Jackson Crawford
- Narrated by: Jackson Crawford
- Length: 6 hrs and 24 mins
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.
Great listen I've been waiting for this
