Prose Edda is a work without predecessor or parallel. Snorri Sturluson feared that the traditional techniques of Norse poetics, the pagan kennings, and the allusions to mythology would be forgotten with the introduction of new verse forms from Europe. Prose Edda was designed as a handbook for poets to compose in the style of the skalds of the Viking ages. It is an exposition of the rule of poetic diction with many examples, applications, and retellings of myths and legends. The present selection includes the whole of Gylfaginning (The deluding of Gylfi)--a guide to mythology that forms one of the great storybooks of the Middle Ages--and the longer heroic tales and legends of Skáldskaparmál (Poetic diction). Snorri Sturluson was a master storyteller, and this translation in modern idiom of the inimitable tales of the gods and heroes of the Scandinavian peoples brings them to life again.

This is the one I assign in my mythology classes, as the translation is approachable, the background information sufficient but not given in confusing detail, and the ancillary material is helpful.

If The Prose Edda reads as well as all the references I have read in the The Hammer and the Cross by Robert Ferguson then, I will have a great read to look forward too!

Great translation!!! Read this along side with 'Children of Odin' and 'Volsung Sagas.' You'll get a great picture of Norse Mythology with these three Great Books.
