GYLFI


GYLFI King of sweden who was tricked by the goddess gefion into giving her some of his land. In another myth Gylfi travels to asgard, the home of the gods, where he meets three beings called High One, Just-As-High, and Third. He questions them about Asgard, its creation, the doings of the gods and goddesses, and the end of the world. The three figures answer his questions at length. The poet snorri sturluson uses this story about Gylfi as a way to begin gylfaginning, the first part of the prose edda.
