http://www.angelfire.com/on/Wodensha...rdrifumal.html is in English only. I think it's helpful to have two languages (Like Sleipnir said, different translations say different things, sort of, and with the ON or OI beside the English, you can use your Swedish to figure it out better, Pagan).
http://www.normanniireiks.org/guilds...grdrifumal.htm has both.
If you are ever looking for texts of this kind, including the Eddas, in Swedish(some other languages, too), Pagan, use the Projekt Runeberg site: http://runeberg.org/search.pl?view=catalog. That is what that site is for - litterary treasures for free for the masses, Swedish heritage in words./T

I will add my 2cents to this thread. I have been reading The Poetic Edda, and it's a wonderful book of poems (nice stories and tales about mythological Norse history). Said to have strongly influenced Tolkien.

It did, in the Hollander translation at the very back is Dvergatal "The Catalogue of the Dwarfs" from St. 9-16 in Voluspá. Every single one of the dwarves in "The Hobbit" can be found there, and thats just the beginning.

I wrote an essay about how TOlkien was influenced by the eddas. If anyone would like to read it then just ask I'll gladly send it - it'd be an honour.

What I heard was that Tolkien was a huge fan of it, even oing so far as to learn finnish to read it, and used the finnish language as an inspiration for one of the elven languages.

hehe yup. and the dwarf languages were based on slavic languages like czech and polish right?...or something like that. i am still currently reading the kalevala, its great so far. also, the songs that both the elves and aragorn/strider would sing are based on the finnish/baltic style of epic poems in verse. i still havent gotten to the edda yet, but i am planing on reading that after i finish the kalevala.

Yes, he was very heavily influenced by Northern European mythology. In fact, it was through Tolkein that I became interested in it as well.
