The Poetic Edda (Older Edda, Codex Regius, Saemundar Edda)
In the translation of Bellows. The text is public domain.

The poetic Edda is a collection of old nordic poetry of unknown authors - Lays of the gods, Lays of the heroes, worldly
 wisdoms. The oldest surviving handwritten collection is the so called Codex Regius. The collected works therein have
been written down before by Saemundur Sidfusson (1056-1133). The content is older then the 11th century and has
most likely survived as spoken works for several centuries before they were written down. Depictions on norwegian
Stave churches and memorial stones shows that the themes in the Edda are much older. Beside the Codex Regius their are
several other poems and songs who survived, becasue of their similarity in style, iambus and content their are seen as eddic
