Snorri Sturluson

Snorri Sturluson (1179-1241)

“‘How should battle be referred to?’
‘By calling it the wind, tumult and din of weapons, and of shields, and of Odin, and of the Valkyrie and of invading kings.'”

  • From The Prose Edda (Skaldskaparmal), by Snorri Sturluson, translated by Jesse Byock. New York: Penguin Classics, 2005.
