The Mead of Poetry
At the end of the Aesir / Vanir War the Gods and Goddesses vowed a truce by spitting into a great vat. From their spittle they formed the wisest human being named Kvasir. One day Kvasir was killed by the dwarves, Fjalar and Galar (Deceiver and Screamer) who brewed Kvasir's blood into a magical mead. Any who drank the mead would become a scholar or poet. The dwarves delighted in murder and mischief and drowned the giant Gilling out at sea for pure sport. Gilling's son, Suttung, soon learned of his father's murder and captured the dwarves. Suttung released the dwarves when they granted to Suttung the mead they brewed from Kvasir's blood. Suttung hid the mead beneath the mountain Hnitbjorg where his daughter, Gunnlod, would watch over it.
Now Odin desired the mead and promised to spend three nights with Gunnlod for three sips of the mead. After the third night, Odin went to the mead, which was stored in three horns, and consumed each horn's contents in single draught. Odin then changed himself into an eagle and flew back to Asgard.
