Title
Old Norse, Snorri Sturluson & The Realm of Jǫtunheimr With Dr. Jackson Crawford
Description
Today I'm joined by Dr. Jackson Crawford! He's an Old Norse specialist and translator teaching at the University of Colorado (formerly UC Berkeley and UCLA). In our almost hour-long discussion, we cover a plethora of topics, starting with an introduction to Old Norse, and then exploring the Poetic & Prose Edda's, and what the differences between the two primary sources are. We also discuss the many different aspects of Norse Mythology, including the chief attributes among the gods, as well as the characterization of giants (or jötnar) in Norse Myth. I implore you to check out Dr. Crawford's prolific YouTube channel, via the link below, as well as to purchase a copy of his translation of The Poetic Edda, or Saga of The Volsungs!
