Excerpt from The Prose Edda

It is with relief that we turn to Snorri's works, to find in them, at least, traces of genuine nobility of spirit. The unscrupulous politician kept sound and pure some corner of his heart in which to enshrine his love for his people's glorious past, for the myths of their ancient gods, half grotesque and half sublime: for the Christ-like Baldr; for Promethean Odin and Tyr,sacrificing eye and hand to save the race; for the tears of F reyja, the tragic sorrows of gudri'in,the pitiful end of Svanhildr, the magnificent, all devastating fire of Ragnariik.
