They are indeed great sagas. Do you have a favourite?
There are so many interesting ones to choose from, but some of my favorites are the stories of Yggdrasil and it's symbolism; Odin's sacrifice on the Tree of Knowledge- his loss of an eye and resulting wisdom; of course, Freya's Brisingamen and her powers of Love and War, and the funniest is about Thor dressing up as Freya for a wedding, in cahoots with Loki..
Amazing Sagas, and the reverence and respect for women throughout Nordic history has been well stated.
