Publisher's summary

Explore captivating myths of the Norse Gods and heroes

The stories from Norse mythology linger in our culture today. Four days of our week are named after members of the Norse pantheon (Tyr, Woden [Odin], Thor, and Frigg). Wagner’s Ring Cycle has kept one version of one of the great Norse stories alive in the minds of music lovers. Fans of modern fantasy will find many echoes of the Norse tales as well. Something in these old and puzzling stories still has the power to move and unsettle us and to inspire new acts of creation.

This audiobook will give you a brief introduction to some of the best-known myths found in the primary sources. This audiobook includes a glossary of names in case you need help keeping track of a rather large cast of characters. Enjoy your explorations!
