    Yggdrasil's ash suffers hardships than men know the hart bites above the side decays and Nidhögg gnaws below Yggdrasil's ash is the best of trees” VoluspaThought provoking and lacking bias this was a truly fascinating essay It will be great to have this information in mind when I do read The Edda uick read too

    I think I was expecting a translation of the Edda however instead this read like either the forward to a translation or a thesisdissertation on the topic Which was fine Obviously it was well researched if somewhat dated The author did include a translation of one of the stories in the appendix which simply whet my appetite for of these stories because it was simply hilarious And truly I continued reading this even after I realized that the it was not simply a translation of the Norse Mythology because I found the history and research conducted to determine the age of the different versions of these myths to be really fascinating So go into this knowing that it is not a mere translation and prepare yourself to enjoy it regardless

    As far as texts on mythology go this isn't particularly good but you can get it for free on behalf of Project Gutenberg It serves as a good primer on the Norse myths and given it's over a 100 years old and still readable that must count for something yeah

    Another book I downloaded and printed for the Odinist prisoners where I served as Protestant Chaplain We had no literature to give them and rather than give them a source for complaining I got this It is of a thesis about the Edda than the Edda itself but there are long uotes I learned about Norse mythology in reading it It was too scholarly for most convicts but they were grateful to get anything We had hundreds of donated Bibles but the Odinist community if there was one was not as generous

    Not the Edda itselfIt was a good analysis of the Edda and the two stars would have been 5 if it had said it wasn't the Edda in the title but it only contained the Thrymnismal
