Publikace: THE POETIC EDDA (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - LARRINGTON, C.. Only up-to-date translation of these key Icelandic poems Young were

the years when Ymir made his settlement, there was no sand nor sea

nor cool waves; earth was nowhere nor the sky above, chaos yawned,

grass was there nowhere. The sun turns black, earth sinks into the

sea, the bright stars vanish from the sky; steam rises up in the

conflagration, a high flame plays against heaven itself. Seeress's

Prophecy 3, 57 The collection of Norse-Icelandic mythological and

heroic poetry known as the Poetic Edda contains the great

narratives of the creation of the world and the coming of Ragnarok,

the Doom of the Gods. The mythological poems explore the wisdom of

the gods and giants, narrating the adventures of the god Thor

against the hostile giants and the gods' rivalries amongst

themselves. The heroic poems trace the exploits of the hero Helgi

and his valkyrie bride, the tragic tale of Sigurd and Brynhild's

doomed love, and the terrible drama of Sigurd's widow Gudrun and

her children. Many of the poems predate the conversion of

Scandinavia to Christianity, allowing us to glimpse the pagan

beliefs of the North. Since the rediscovery of the Poetic Edda in

the seventeenth century, its poetry has fascinated artists as

diverse as Thomas Gray, Richard Wagner, and Jorge Luis Borges. This

is the first complete translation to be published in Britain for

fifty years, and it includes a scholarly introduction, notes, a

genealogy of the gods and giants, and an index of names. ABOUT THE
