Hávamál is the words of wisdom which served as spiritual provisions for the Vikings on their long journeys over the rough sea to discover new lands. These sayings give a clear picture of their view of and attitude to life. It has often been compared to the old Chinese book of the Tao, which could be called the wisdom of the east. In the same manner, Hávamál is well described as the wisdom of the north. This small book is in a new and readable translation.
