Sinopsis:

Excerpt from The Prose or Younger Edda Commonly Ascribed to Snorri Sturluson: Translated From the Old Norse

The short work now for the first time, it is believed, laid before the English reader, forms in the original the first part of a collection published by Prof. Rask. at Stockholm in 1818, under the following title. "Snorra-Edda asamt Skàldu og parmed fylgjandi Rit-gjoròum". "Snorri's Edda together with the Skalda and the Treatises thereto belonging". It was the opinion of that great Philologist that this collection grew together in the family of Snorri Sturluson, the work of several hands at different times; and the Translator has not scrupled to separate writings, which have scarcely any other connection than the fact of their being found following one another in the same MS. At some other time he looks forward to stating his convictions on this matter, and his reasons for them, at greater length; but for the present he must content himself with saying, that his opinion is in the main the same as that mentioned above as expressed by Prof. Rask.

He has also taken the liberty of printing separately and under a different title, the chap ter which in the original stands as the first in Gylfi's Mocking, because however interesting it has clearly nothing in common with what follows and is doubtless the interpolation of some early copyist, who thought himself bound to Write down at the same time all he knew about Gylfi, and could find no better place for this myth than to'set it first: it is remarkable that in the Upsala ms., said by some to bathe oldest extant, this chapter is omitted.
