Our Books


Poems of the Elder Edda Patricia Terry's verse translation of the classic poetry of the Vikings.The great poetic tradition of pre-Christian Scandinavia is known to us almost exclusively though the Prose Edda, a collection of narrative literature, and its companion, the Poetic Edda. The poems originated in Iceland, Norway, and Greenland between the ninth and 13th centuries, when they were compiled in a unique manuscript known as the Codex Regius. The poems are primarily lyrical rather than narrative. Featuring Shiromi Arserio, ThomaS Landbo, Matthew Posner, and Wanda Moats.
