BRAGI


BRAGI The god of poetry, eloquence, and music. Bragi was the son of odin and gunlod and husband of idunn. Bragi does not play a major role in Norse myths. He is pictured as playing on a harp and singing so sweetly that even the trees and flowers are charmed by him. Norsemen called their poets or skalds bragamen or bragawomen. In English the verb to brag means to boast rather loudly of one's achievements. Because Odin had a great knowledge of poetry, some scholars see Bragi as another facet of Odin's personality.
