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.… (mere)

The Norse mythology that has come down to us, is primarily thanks to one Icelandic scholar and politician. The Prose Edda is Snorri Sturluson’s attempt to compile the myths of the Northern world and save the knowledge of how skaldic poetry is composed.

The book is essentially divided into two parts, the first is strictly concerned with mythology and the second is a mix of mythology and learning the rules of skaldic poetry. While Snorri follows the examples of Virgil and Geoffrey of Monmouth of connecting the Norse gods to originally being refugees of Troy that uncivilized tribes were awed by and made into gods, his prose retelling of the Norse myths seen in The Poetic Edda is not only exceptionally good but was most well-known versions for centuries. In fact, Snorri includes more myths than what appears in The Prose Edda including more that relate to Loki and Sif and others. The second half which features Snorri telling the rules of skaldic poetry by using mythic and saga verses is an easy, quick read that those not really interested will not find daunting in finishing the book but adds to the overall knowledge of skaldic tradition if one reads The Poetic Edda after Snorri’s book.

Unlike The Poetic Edda in which readers are not really sure how much Christianization has leaked into the versions written in, the reader knows from the beginning that Snorri is threading the edge of being a Christian and attempting to preserve his cultures pagan heritage. Brodeur’s translation not only reads well with occasional footnotes when giving meanings to words, but the spellings that the 21st Century reader knows of the various god’s names are the same.

The Prose Edda is the primary source of the vast majority of what we know today of Norse mythology and that alone recommends this book to those interested in mythology of any type. ( )

Lovely, though I suspect the original compiler of some of these stories had a bit too much mead to drink when he told the stories. ( )

I had just finished reading the "Poetic Edda", so I decided to read the other one. Wasn't disappointed. It was a good deal shorter than I had expected, and kept the Volsung material to a minimum. ( )

Norse sagas written in Iceland around 1210 by Snorri Sturluson (I couldn't possibly have made up that name!). It records histories and traditions of the Norse people. Some material is gruesome, but then we're dealing with a people who hoped to die in battle! ( )

Geweldig dat de proza-Edda eindelijk in zijn geheel in het Nederlands vertaald is. De vlotte vertaling leest prettig. De noten bevatten leuke en nuttige informatie. Ik vind het jammer dat de vertaler ervoor gekozen heeft veel namen te vertalen. Dat is maar een paar keer leuk voor de betekenis, maar meestal alleen lastig. "Inslaper" staat niet in mijn mythologische woordenboek, de oorspronkelijke naam Sváfnir wel. Daarbij is het maar zeer de vraag of Inslaper de werkelijke betekenis van de naam is.

Koop overigens nooit het e-boek van dit boek. Zowel de noten als het register ontbreken. Hierdoor is het onmogelijk de oorspronkelijke naam van karakters te achterhalen. Dat is niet alleen lastig als je iets wil opzoeken, maar ook als je dezelfde figuren in een ander boek tegenkomt. Je herkent ze niet, omdat je de oorspronkelijk naam niet weet. Je hebt dus niets aan deze versie als je van plan bent meer boeken te lezen over noordse mythologie.

Ik zou er zelf nooit voor kiezen om alle namen te vertalen. Ik vind dat Marcel Otten zich daardoor slecht van zijn taak als eerste vertaler heeft gekweten, Een compromis was beter geweest. Het was voldoende geweest om de oorspronkelijke naam tussen haakjes te vermelden, waar de naam het eerst voorkomt. Het geblader naar de index doet alleen maar af aan het leesgenot. De keuze om de index en de noten niet op te nemen in de ebook-versie is onbegrijpelijk. Let op bij de aanschaf van tweedehands exemplaren. Hier hoort een erratum-blad bij voor pagina 234. Dat is de tweede pagina van de noten. ( )

In the beginning, before the heaven and the earth and the sea were created, the great abyss Ginungagap was without form and void, and the spirit of Fimbultyr moved upon the face of the deep, until the ice-cold rivers, the Elivogs, flowing from Niflheim, came in contact with the dazzling flames from Muspelheim. This was before Chaos.
