The prose Edda of Snorri Sturluson; tales from Norse mythology by Snorri Sturluson( Book )

2 editions published in 1665 in Icelandic and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Prose Edda is the most renowned of all works of Scandinavian literature and our most extensive source for Norse mythology. Written in Iceland a century after the close of the Viking Age, it tells ancient stories of the Norse creation epic and recounts the battles that follow as gods, giants, dwarves and elves struggle for survival. It also preserves the oral memory of heroes, warrior kings and queens. In clear prose interspersed with powerful verse, the Edda provides unparalleled insight into the gods' tragic realization that the future holds one final cataclysmic battle, Ragnarok, when the world will be destroyed. These tales from the pagan era have proved to be among the most influential of all myths and legends, inspiring modern works as diverse as Wagner's Ring Cycle and Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings." "This new translation by Jesse Byock captures the strength and subtlety of the original, while his introduction sets the tales fully in the context of Norse mythology. This edition also includes detailed notes and appendices."--Jacket

I 1711 ble Norges historie av Tormod Torfæus utgitt i fire bind. Dette var den første sammenhengende presentasjonen av norsk historie siden Heimskringla av Snorre Sturlasson fra 1200-tallet. Tormod Torfæus var islending og trådte inn i den dansk-norske kongens tjeneste i 1660. Hans norgeshistorie går fra tidenes morgen til 1387. Verket fokuserer på senmiddelalderen. Torfæus brukte de gamle norrøne sagaene som kildemateriell og bearbeidet dette materialet sammen med samtidige europeiske kilder til en forståelig historie skrevet på latin. Gjennom Torfæus sine tilpasninger ble den norrøne litterære tradisjonen kjent for et stort publikum i Danmark-Norge og ellers i Europa. Det som i de neste århundrer ble skrevet om norsk historie, baserte seg i hovedsak på Torfæus firebindsverk. I 1387 inngikk Norge union med Danmark. Danskekongen finansierte historieverket som skulle bli den fulle og avsluttede historien om Norge. Slik ble det ikke. I stedet har vi et uovertruffent verk om vår nasjons tidlige historie. Tormod Torfæus (1636-1719) ble født på Island, studerte og arbeidet i København, men bodde de femti siste år av sitt lange liv i Kopervik på Karmøy. "...en av de prægtigste og anseeligste Historier, som nogensinde er komne for Lyset." Ludvig Holberg
