Poetic Edda the Mythological Poems

Poetic Edda the Mythological Poems Cover

 

Staff Pick

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.
