Book Description :

The Norse Myths presents the infamous Viking gods, from the mighty Asyr, led by �?inn, and the mysterious Vanir, to Thor and the mythological cosmos they inhabit. Passages translated from Old Norse bring this legendary world to life, from the myths of creation to ragnar�k, the prophesied end of the world at the hands of Loki’s army of monsters and giants, and everything that comes in between: the long and problematic relationship between the gods and the giants, the (mis)adventures of human heroes and heroines, with their family feuds, revenges, marriages, and murders; and the interaction between the gods and mortals. Photographs and drawings show a range of Norse sites, objects, and characters, from Viking ship burials to dragons on runestones. Dr. Carolyne Larrington describes the Norse myths’ origins in pre-Christian Scandinavia and Iceland, and their survival in archaeological artifacts and written sources, from Old Norse sagas and poems to the less-approving accounts of medieval Christian writers. She traces their influences into the work of Wagner, William Morris, and J. R. R. Tolkien, and even Game of Thrones in the resurrection of the Fimbulvetr, or “Mighty Winter."

Book Description :

Norse myths have long fascinated millions around the world. Tales of Norse Gods like Thor and Loki have sustained the imaginations of adult and young people alike, even into modern times. Indeed, figures of Norse legend have permeated into mainstream culture in the form of popular characters from television and film. One God, in particular, has even given his name to a day of the week. In Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs, you will be exposed to the original tales of the Gods; the tales that modern depictions are ultimately inspired by. Norse myth has become a part of us in ways that we do not fully appreciate. Indeed, the Norse God Thor has come to embody the ideal of strength and masculinity. The trickster God Loki, on the other hand, has come to represent some of the more sinister and unpredictable elements of Man. In fact, the Norse used their Gods to embody those aspects of Man's own nature that were often at war. In Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs, you will learn about all the Gods by reading about the tales that formed the basis of the myths about them. Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs explores the Norse Gods and the Viking belief system through the tales told by people living at the time. They told tales about the formation of the universe, about how the universe was divided, and how the Gods and giants made war with one another. Because the Viking belief system was reflected in these tales about their Gods and historical figures, learning about the Gods and heroes in this way allows the reader to understand who the Vikings were and why they were.The world of Norse myth was very different from our own. The people at the heart of Norse civilization - living in modern-day Scandinavia, Northern Germany, as well as other areas of Norse settlement like Iceland and the British Isles - these people were part of a culture so far removed from how we think and perceive today as to be almost unrecognizable. But that does not mean that you must struggle to understand Norse legends and the Vikings who believed in them.In Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs, you will learn everything there is to learn about Norse mythology. You will learn the different groups of living things that existed in the universe, how the universe was divided into nine worlds, who the major Gods and Goddesses were, who some of the important heroes were, and how the speakers of Old Norse recorded the feats of gods and men in books called sagas. These sagas told the tales of the great figures of Norse legend. In Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs, you will learn some of these tales including: The Tale of Odin's Eye and Mimir's Head The Unusual Wedding of Freyja Loki and His Strange Children The Death of Baldr The Kidnapping of Idun The Birth of Sigurd And Ragnarok: the Twilight of the Gods Buy now to learn more than you ever dreamed about Norse Gods and Goddesses and Viking beliefs.

The great Norse Myths are among the most dramatic and unforgettable stories in all human history. These fascinating, fantastical tales have inspired centuries of art, culture and literature, including the storytelling of Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, George RR Martin's Game of Thrones, Wagner's Ring Cycle and Marvel Comics. The Norse Myths takes us on a thrilling journey through the Norse cosmos, from the creation of the world to Ragnarok, the final world-destroying conflict; via the Nine Worlds, and the exploits of the mighty gods and goddesses - mystical Odin, malicious Loki, mighty Thor and more - and their quarrel with the giants. Bringing to life the magical world of monsters and mythical creatures, this also introduces the adventures of humankind: folk heroes and tricksters; Sigmund's great battle in the Volsung Saga; the exploits of Kings and Princes; and Viking exploration and settlement of new lands including Iceland, Greenland, America, and Viking life in the Mediterranean and the East. As well as a treasure trove of these epic stories of heroism and cruelty, squabbles and seductions, The Norse Myths is a comprehensive study of their origins, survival and interpretations - as academically important as it is exhilarating.
