Descrizione dell’editore

Snorri Sturluson was one of the great writers of medieval Europe. Through years of hard work and dedication, he had gained a deep understanding of Icelandic tradition. The Younger Edda tells us the story of the Norse pantheon of Gods and Goddesses and the creation story of the world according to the Norse belief system. This book is divided in three parts: The fooling of Gylfe, a narrative of Norse mythology (Odin, Thor, Balder...), the Brage's Talk and the Skáldskaparmál, extracts from the poetical diction. This is a wonderful, erudite, enjoyable translation of Snorri Sturluson's original 'Edda'. This large print edition contains an informative introduction that explains the beginning of the Edda, numerous notes and a useful vocabulary. For ease of consultation, the text is followed by a detailed table of contents.

This book is a must-read for the studies of Norse mythology. So if you're wanting to gain more knowledge about the pagan beliefs then this is a must-have.
