POEMS OF THE ELDER EDDA

by | Read by Shiromi Arserio, Wanda Moats, Matthew Posner, ThomaS Landbo

Poetry & Drama • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1990

Listeners unfamiliar with classic Old Norse poetry will gain an appreciation for the passion and the values--blind heroism, revenge, honor--that inhabit it. Although each narrator has a particular style, they all enunciate clearly, which is important with a text that has so many unfamiliar-sounding names of characters and places. In an interesting choice, Matthew Posner adopts a rich, clear Scottish accent. The poems draw on stories from the Old Norse religion and tales of heroism, with bits of the histories of Huns, Goths, and Burgundians. Those who are looking for an introduction to Viking literature should be pleased with this production. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
