Þrymskviða (2)

Þrymskviða (is.)
Lay of Thrymr (en.)
One of the mythological poems preserved in the Poetic Edda that relates the story of the theft of Þórr´s hammer by the giant Þrymr. The giant says that he will only return it if he is permitted to marry Freyja. Þórr is persuaded by the gods to dress in Freyja´s clothes and to travel to Þrymr´s court for the wedding.
