Snorri Sturluson and the Edda : the conversion of cultural capital in medieval Scandinavia by Kevin J Wanner( )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why would Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179-1241), the most powerful and rapacious Icelander of his generation, dedicate so much time and effort to producing the Edda, a text that is widely recognized as the most significant medieval source for pre-Christian Norse myth and poetics? Kevin J. Wanner brings us a new account of the interests that motivated the production of this text, and resolves the mystery of its genesis by demonstrating the intersection of Snorri's political and cultural concerns and practices." "A fascinating look at the intersections of political interest and cultural production, Snorri Sturluson and the Edda is a detailed portrait of both an important man and the society of his times."--BOOK JACKET
