The Poetic Edda is the single greatest legacy of the Viking people. An incomparable masterpiece of human literature. You will find here all the mythological and legendary poems from this enigmatic collection in both the original Old Norse language and in clear English translation. Each stanza is accompanied directly with its English translation, so there is no need for messy back-and-forth page turning as in other parallel text editions. The value of parallel text editions is apparent to anyone with an interest in ancient languages and literature. These editions can be used to aid vocabulary and grammar learning, to help foster a deeper familiarity with ancient literature, or simply just for the pleasure of hearing old tongues at their best.
