The Poetic Edda

The Poetic Edda

Update 3/5/2015: The book is now available.

My translation of the Poetic Edda is now available for pre-order on Amazon. The book will be released on March 15th. This is the first translation of the Poetic Edda – our main source for the stories of the Norse gods and heroes – to appear in contemporary, approachable American English, and is meant both for classroom use and for the private reader. The translations are based on those that I used in my own Norse Mythology class I taught at UCLA during my years there. This book also contains my infamous Cowboy Havamal, which first appeared on this blog.
