From its first beginnings in a world of primordial ice floes, the story of the Viking gods is one of continual struggle against etins and monsters, but it is a tale of humour and triumph as well as of grit and tragedy. The Norse myths are justly famous for a host of vivid characters including the wise and enigmatic Odin, the bluff strongman Thor, and the incorrigible trickster Loki. In the first major retelling for a generation, storyteller and historian Thor Ewing rediscovers the brisk vitality with which these ancient myths were told in the earliest sources. With 45 stunning b&w illustrations inspired by Viking art.

“Remarkable.… Gaiman has provided an enchanting contemporary interpretation of the Viking ethos.”—Lisa L. Hannett, Atlantic Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravura rendition of the Norse gods and their world from their origin though their upheaval in Ragnarok. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki—son of a giant—blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose, these gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

Have you ever wondered how Thor got his hammer? Norse Mythology: Classic Stories of the Norse Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, and Monsters contains stories passed down from the ancient Norse religion, practiced by the Vikings and other northern people who live in modern-day Scandinavia, Iceland, and throughout the British Isles. Inside this book you will find myths that answer the following questions: How did Odin form the world from Ymir's body and make men and women from wood? What are the names of the nine realms and who (or what) live in them? Why does Odin have only one eye and why does Tyr have only one hand? Where the gift of poetry comes from? Who are Loki's children and why does Odin fear them? Why do the gods fear the end of the world and what will happen at Ragnarok? In this book, you will also find many stories about the gods Thor and Loki and their exploits in the land of the giants. You will read the story of the dwarf Andvari and his golden ring-the myth that is the basis for Robert Wagner's famous opera The Ring of Nibelung as well as J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. And, in these pages, you will find the story of the mortal hero Sigurd and his battle with the dragon Fafnir. Whether you are new to Norse Mythology or looking to dive into the rich, fantastical world, Norse Mythology: Classic Stories of the Norse Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, and Monsters is the place to start!
