It is snorri sturluson edda em prosa that more than two hundred years of oral circulation since the conversion resulted in innumerous alterations of the old stories told throughout this time.

It is highly unlikely that the material Snorri worked with reflected an immaculate picture of the beliefs of ancestors who preceded him by at least four generations. Variation is an intrinsic characteristic of oral discourse and it indubitably played a role in the transmission of snorri sturluson edda em prosa stories along the years.

According to Faulkes He would not have felt it wrong to depart from or expand his sources in Gylfaginning too if artistic or other considerations required it, and he would probably not have felt inhibited from inventing new stories or drastically altering old ones if he saw fit. Some of them probably contradicted each other or presented some kind of conflict which snorri sturluson edda em prosa author had to address accordingly.

This probably meant, sometimes, inventing entire stories, and, sometimes, adapting them so that they could connect to each other in a smooth way.

A very illuminative example is found in Gylfaginning: As Langer, Oliveira and Ferreira This description of two birds on top of one another, however, is unique.
