Bragi is the wise and learned bard of the Aesir gods and goddesses. He’s the divine archetype of ancient Germanic court poets such as Unferð in Beowulf. According to the Prose Edda, one of the Old Norse words for “poetry” (bragr) is derived from the name of this god. One Eddic poem depicts him as having runes carved on his tongue. In early Old Norse poetry, he frequently regales renowned heroes upon their entrance to Valhalla. His wife is Idun, the goddess whose fruits guarantee the continued immortality of the gods.
