HAVAMAL

Also known as HAMAVAL, HIGH SONG, POETIC EDDA

Words of the high one. Odins autobiography meets Scandinavia's answer to the ten commandments, except there's more than ten of them! And the whole thing is written in verse, which isn't necessarily a good thing.

The book of wisdom lays out the rules for the Norse folk and offers guidelines on everything from pet handling to hospitality. It even goes into detail of how a man should conduct himself if he wishes to gain favour with the opposite sex, but there is no mention of staying faithful once you get there. This doesn't suprise me given Odin's reputation as a serial adulterer.

I'm sure it all made perfect sense back in the day.
