The vibrant Old Norse poems in this 13th-century collection recapture the ancient oral traditions of the Norsemen. These mythological poems include the Voluspo,
one of the broadest literary conceptions of the world's creation and ultimate destruction; the Lokasenna,
a comedy bursting with vivid characterizations; and more.
Republication of The Poetic Edda: Lays of the Gods, originally published by The American-Scandinavian Foundation, New York, 1923.
