Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Prose Edda: Norse Mythology (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
As preparation for a visit to Iceland I bought this book and wished that I had read it sooner as it is essential reading for anyone with an interest in both history and literature. Many writers have been inspired by Norse mythology and it is the source of many types of literature and, indeed, music ( e.g. Wagner's operas ) Although familiar with Nordic myths this particular volume is very readable with good commentaries.
