Happy mail day!

Beowulf and its Analogues, translated by G.N. Garmonsway and Jacqueline Simpson, including "Archaeolgy and Beowulf" by Hilda Ellis Davidson (E.P Dutton: New York, 1968).

This is a very cool book. and just glancing through it has given me some "ooh, really?" moments as well as a few raised eyebrows. Probably I will sit down and read it eventually, although not right now. The reason I got it was a short section including various mentions (all gathered together in that section) of the Brisingamen story, including most of the bit from Sorlathattr.

I just got the same book, for the exact same part (Brisingamen), as well as trying to track down any evidence (rather than supposition) for why Hama is seen as Heimdall :D I tried googling Sorlathattr and came up with you LJ as about the only result, I hope you don't mind but I've added you to my friends list :-)
