    Must Read

    This is one of the major sources to our knowledge of Norse Mythology. From the creation of the world, to the adventures of the God's and their heroes, to the twilight of the Gods, this book is an absolute must read. It is also a great tool for those interested in skaldic poetry.

    Excellent version, difficult to find elsewhere

    This is the version best for lay persons who want an authentic taste of Norse Mythology. The translation is clear and intriguing, and this particular version includes only the parts of the Edda that are easily understood and most relevant (It omits the complex treatise on skaldic poetry, for instance, but includes the entire Gylfaginning and the section on kennings).

    There is more to the Lord of the Rings!

    If you love Gandalf and things Elvish, this is a book for you. I read this and the Poetic Edda year ago after my first reading of the Trilogy. The Eddas are a challenge to read, but the hard work is worth it. You will have a deeper understanding of the Viking period and will recognize numerous myths. My daughter recently went to Iceland and is receiving this as a gift after she said the Prose Edda seemed to be so important to that country's history
