Carolyne Larrington has published widely on Old Norse myth, legends, and literature, including co-editing two volumes of essays on Eddic poetry with Paul Acker. Her books include King Arthur's Enchantresses: Morgan and Her Sisters in Arthurian Tradition (IB Tauris, 2006), Magical Tales: Myth, Legend, and Enchantment in Children's Books (with Diane Purkiss, Bodleian Library, 2013), and The Norse Myths: A Guide to the Gods and Heroes (Thames and Hudson, 2017).
"Larrington's version of The Poetic Edda has been beautifully translated, and the flow of each poem is perfect." - Kirsty Hewitt, Book Hugger"A 750-year-old haul of Icelandic verse might not sound like cutting-edge entertainment but these sinewy sagas include such modern elements as gutsy heroines and ultra-violence." - Christopher Hirst, Independent
