Grimnismal

The Grimnismál is a poem in The Elder Edda, which deals with many aspects of Norse mythology. It is spoken through the voice of Grimnir, one of the god Odin's many guises who is (through an error) tortured by King Geirröth. This was to prove a fatal mistake since Odin caused him to fall upon his own sword.
