Icelandic Poetry
opal

I'm been wanting to read some Icelandic or Norse poetry for about a month.  Between travel and life density I haven't had much luck finding what I want. I think this may be jewelry related but I'm not sure.

Anyway, if anyone knows some good choices,  preferable relatively recent translations that are poetry not prose, I'd be really interested.  I read a fair amount of them a long time ago, but the only translations I liked that stick in my head are a couple of Ezra Pound's.

Love the opal icon. (I'm Berni.)

. . . took me a while for the title to rise to the top of my memory, but Poul Anderson did a version of one of them called Hrolf Kraki’s Saga. You might know it, or have already read it, or it might not be close enough to what you're hankering for, but I thought I'd throw it in, for completeness,

If I did, it was along time ago. Thanks. I'll check it out.
