    Author: BIRKETT TOM
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The greatest legends, battles and heroics of Norse Mythology, brought to life and explained in fascinating detail.

    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.
