Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Presenting a moment classic―master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents an astonishing form of the considerable Norse myths.
Neil Gaiman has for quite some time been enlivened by antiquated mythology in making the fantastical domains of his fiction. Presently he turns his consideration back to the source, exhibiting a bravura interpretation of the immense northern stories.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman remains consistent with the myths in imagining the real Norse pantheon: Odin, the most elevated of the high, astute, brave, and crafty; Thor, Odin’s child, unimaginably solid yet not the savvies of divine beings; and Loki―son of a giant―blood sibling to Odin and a swindler and top notch controller.
Gaiman styles these antiquated stories into a novelistic circular segment that starts with the beginning of the unbelievable nine universes and digs into the endeavors of divinities, smaller people, and monsters. Once, when Thor’s mallet is stolen, Thor must mask himself as a woman―difficult with his facial hair and immense appetite―to take it back. More piercing is the story in which the blood of Kvasir―the most clever of gods―is transformed into a mead that implants consumers with verse. The work comes full circle in Ragnarok, the nightfall of the divine beings and resurrection of another time and individuals.
