This collection is a must read for anyone interested in Old Norse poetry It is an excellent complement to The Poetic Elder Edda In these violent, vengeance driven poems, Lee Hollander does an excellent job of maintaining a meter alliteration scheme that closely approximates the original Norse The poems themselves are fragmentary, but provide a dramatic look into the brutal Norse heroic age The only downside to this book is its formatting Parts were obviously scanned from some other format probably something web based with very few formatting corrections The poetry itself is printed in a tacky faux Celtic Nordic font that borders on the unreadable in some passages Avoid this edition 2010 Abela Publishing if you can find it in some other edition format. For those out there who have read the Eddas and am looking for some buried treasure concerning Norse mythology, then this is for you Here you will find further stories of heroes, battles, Odin, Valhalla and Valkyries My only gripe is that the translation is not an easy read Hollander strikes me as a scholar s scholar if the English is not archaic and unidiomatic, then there is something wrong.
