Dramatically recreating the voices of the legendary past, eddic poems distil moments of high emotion as human heroes and supernatural beings alike grapple with betrayal, loyalty, mortality and love. These poems relate the most famous deeds of gods such as \u00D3\u00F0inn and \u00DE\u00F3rr with their adversaries the giants; they bring to life the often fraught interactions between kings, queens and heroes as well as their encounters with valkyries, elves, dragons and dwarfs. Written by leading international scholars, the chapters in this volume showcase the poetic riches of the eddic corpus, and reveal its relevance to the history of poetics, gender studies, pre-Christian religions, art history and archaeology. --<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Introduction \/ Carolyne Larrington -- 1 The transmission and preservation of eddic poetry \/ Margaret Clunies Ross -- 2 Traditions of eddic scholarship \/ Joseph Harris -- 3 The editing of eddic poetry \/ Judy Quinn -- 4 The dating of eddic poetry \/ Bernt \u00D8.
