A Commentary on the Old Norse Rune Poems

By David Stone, also available as an Ebook.

36 pages A5 Booklet. There is no right or wrong way to interpret the rune poems, they are a kind of cross between a riddle and a koan. However David has carefully studied the Younger Futhork for many years and written several other works on the subject. So his thoughts and ideas about the rune poems are erudite, illuminating and thought provoking.

This booklet will inform you about the traditional meanings of the rune poems. David's commentary will enable you to understand the couplets more fully. But the real purpose will be to stimulate you to consider the rune poems for yourself and think more deeply about what they mean to you.
