The Poetic Edda, also known as Sæmundar Edda or the Elder Edda, is a collection of Old Norse poems from the Icelandic medieval manuscript Codex Regius ("Royal Book"). Along with the... More > Prose Edda, the Poetic Edda is the most expansive source on Norse mythology.

The Othala Edda By Faolchú Ifreann
Paperback: $18.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Othala Edda is the result of the culmination of years of meditation, research and worship of Odin. Within this text you will find a large section of Lays from The Poetic Edda translated... More > into modern-day English with comprehensive notes on each stanza. I have also included interpretations of sections of The Heimskringla to provide a historical insight into our religion. It was my goal to create a text which encompasses what I believe to be “Essential Odinism”. This work took several grueling months to write, review, and format. We had the help of great artists Dan Moreschi and Tony Sahara who also helped us with our first book "Odin's Chosen: A Handbook of Asatru". This is a great book for anyone, whether you are beginning to read the Lays or have read the Lays and need an extra hand in deciphering those Lays. We hope everyone enjoys reading this book as much as we did creating it.< Less
