Oxford World's Classics (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1999). The second was
written by Snorri Sturluson (1179-1241), most probably around 1222, as a
textbook for young poets wishing to praise kings. Sturluson examines the content,
style, and meters of the Scaldic poetry of Iceland, and offers the oldest and most
complete account of Scandinavian mythology that exists. For an introduction and
an English translation, see Iesse L. Byock, The Prose Edda: Norse Mythology.
