Product description

Review

Larringtons version of The Poetic Edda has been beautifully translated, and the flow of each poem is perfect. (Kirsty Hewitt, Book Hugger)

A 750-year-old haul of Icelandic verse might not sound like cutting-edge entertainment but these sinewy sagas include such modern elements as gutsy heroines and ultra-violence. (Christopher Hirst, Independent)

these sinewy sagas include such modern elements as gutsy heroines and ultra-violence (Independent) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
