Snorri Sturluson

Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179-1241)

“Hraesvelg, he is called,
who sits at heaven’s end,
a giant in eagle’s shape.
From his wings,
it is said, the winds
blow over all men.”

  • The Sibyl’s Prophecy (37), cited in The Prose Edda (Gylfaginning, section 18) by Snorri Sturluson, translated by Jesse Byock (Penguin Classics, 2005).
