48 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in German and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Edda zieht mit ihren Geschichten über die nordischen Helden und Götter seit jeher die Leser in ihren Bann. Die Sonderausgabe bietet ein großes Leseabenteuer zum kleinen Preis. Die Edda ist zugleich Götterkunde und Heldenepos, Spruchweisheit, Sittengedicht, Zauberlied und Vision von poetischer Kraft. Thor, Odin und sein Rabe, der grausame Wolf Fenrir, die weltumschlingende Riesenschlange Midgard - die Edda umfasst den ganzen Kosmos altnordischen Glaubens und Dichtens. Dazu gehören nicht nur Heldenepen, wie die Gesänge um Sigurd und Gudrun, sondern auch Weisheiten aus dem altgermanischen Alltag. Sie bringen uns eine Vergangenheit näher, die in mythische Zeiten versunken zu sein scheint
Waltharius by Ekkehard( Book )

32 editions published between 1953 and 1982 in German and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Waltharius, a medieval Latin epic poem of over 1400 lines, richly retells the story of a vigorous Germanic saga in the language and style of classical and Christian Latin poetry. Walter, its hero, is a pagan warrior ready to mock his enemies and mercilessly decapitate them, but also a pious Christian who refrains from premarital sex and stops to pray and ask for God's mercy in the middle of a battle. The poem varies remarkably in tone, providing both fervent moral commentary and bitter black comedy. The growing scholarship on the poem outside of Germany, where it has always been popular, no doubt results from its weird allure and eclectic nature. It has something for everyone. This new edition uses a fresh review of manuscripts--especially the recently discovered fragments at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign--in order to provide a text and apparatus that will aid the reader in understanding the poem's tangled manuscript history. The notes are rather fuller than those of previous English-language editions, providing useful context to understand the complicated relationships among the Germanic, classical Latin, and Christian Latin traditions as well as tracking various themes and stylistic features that the poet employs
