Read online Norse Mythology.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Norse Mythology p Introducing an instant classic master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a dazzling version of the great Norse myths p Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction Now he turns his attention back to the source presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales In em Norse Mythology em Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds delves into the exploits of the deities dwarves and giants and culminates in Ragnarok the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin the highest of the high wise daring and cunning Thor Odin s son incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods and Loki the son of giants a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator From Gaiman s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions making these long ago myths breathe pungent life again by Neil Gaiman
