An episode from 10/19/22: In this second episode on Norse Mythology, I read from the creation myths found in the poem, “Voluspa,” found in the Poetic Edda, and from its corresponding sections in the Prose Edda. I also read from commentaries on these sections.
The translation of the Poetic Edda that I read from is by Andy Orchard, and the Prose Edda by Anthony Faulkes. The commentary I read from on the Poetic Edda, for the last half hour of the episode, comes from the translation and commentary by Ursula Dronke.
