If you have an interest in classic Norse literature, this audiobook is required listening. If all you know about the Norse gods comes from Marvel, it will be a revelation. Jackson Crawford, who translated, introduces, and reads the text, also brings a knowledge of correct pronunciation, which will be unfamiliar to most. As a bonus, he translates one of the poems into "cowboy-style" English. The general introduction and the introductions to the individual poems are clear and informative as they locate the works in a mythos that is unfamiliar to many. One might wish that the readings were a little more passionate, to match the poems, but that's a minor issue. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
