Overview

"The Edda: Divine & Heroic Mythology of the North" gathers in a single volume two studies authored by Winifred Faraday. These studies were originally published in two volumes as part of the Popular Studies in Mythology, Romance and Folklore series.

Besides the studies on the traditional pagan aspects of "The Edda" this volume was enriched with the inclusion of "Paganism as a Weltanshauung", a classic essay by Ramón Bau, a Spanish author, intellectual and devoted Wagnerian, former president of the Circle of Indo-European Studies.

Bau's essay deals mostly with modern paganism, its deviations and misinterpretations, and its validity as a worldview even today for those seeking an alternative way of life, an excellent supplement to Faraday's studies on the ancestral pagan world, as pictured in "The Edda".
