From the Back Cover
'Snorri Sturluson and the Edda
is a significant publication in the field for two important reasons: first, it offers a provocative challenge to established models of literary culture in medieval Scandinavia; secondly, it is certainly the most up-to-date and probably the most comprehensive scholarly treatment of Snorri Sturluson's life and works yet to have been written.'-Christopher Abram, Department of Scandinavian Studies, University College, London
