First published in 1923, this volume provides the entire text of the Hávamál in the original Old Norse, together with a facing-page English translation. At the time of publication, the poem had only been made available within editions of the Poetic Edda or still larger collections. This was therefore a significant book, which considerably increased the accessibility of the Hávamál. A long introduction and generous notes are also provided, together with extracts from three other poems (including the greater part of the Sigrdrífumál) which serve to complement the main text.
