ELDER OR POETIC EDDA?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Poetic Edda (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
For information, the contents of The Elder Edda (Penguin) and The Poetic Edda (Oxford) are the same, something I only discovered after ordering. The Poetic Edda is the more commonly used title (in conjunction with the Prose Edda by Snorri)so perhaps the Penguin title is slightly misleading for the unwary. Both translations are good and well annotated but you probably don't need to own both.
