    Whats The Best Version / Publisher Of The Prose Edda ?

    Surprisingly, after all the Saga’s Ive read, and most of the Poetic Edda, Ive never read the Prose Edda.

    Im wondering the best translation / published version of the book to get ?

    Thanks.

    I am not one to judge, but this is the edition I have:

    http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14726

    Translated by Thorpe and Blackwell. To be honest, I chose it based upon the fact that Thorpe is a Viking English surname like my own and figured he would be more in tune than some others.
