Edda is the name of two Old Norse writings which constitute the most authoritative source for Norse mythology: the Elder, or Poetic, Edda, dealing with Norse mythology (compiled ca. 1250 based on older materials), and the Younger, or Prose, Edda, composed by Snorri Sturluson (ca. 1220), containing various mythological stories, as well as a treatise on poetry.
