    Post The Poetic Eddas of Iceland

    A fantastic link to the oral literature of Iceland, the Eddas

    http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/poe/#index

    Hearing I ask, from the holy races,
    From Heimdall's sons, both high and low;
    Thou wilt, Valfather, that well I relate
    Old tales I remember, of men long ago

    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    I actually read though most of that not too long ago. Same site also.

    One part that particularly stuck out in my mind was from the 'hovamol.'

    "95. The head alone knows | what dwells near the heart,
    A man knows his mind alone;
    No sickness is worse | to one who is wise
    Than to lack the longed-for joy."

    Yeah. Some of it is quite insightful.
