    Paperback ☆ Edda Kindle Ì edda mobile, Edda eBookThe Edda is a collection of Norse myths written in the 13th century by a dude named Snorri It's where we got most of our knowledge of Norse mythology today and it's wicked awesome I learned for instance that your legs may hump each other and produce a child while you're asleep which is something I'm going to be careful about from now on And that mead started as god spit then turned into blood and ended up being farted out of Odin's ass which is by a train of logic that actually kinda makes sense when you read it why it's called the drink of poets These are important things to knowI also lear

    Paperback ☆ Edda Kindle Ì edda mobile, Edda eBookIt’s sort of strange to give a review of a book like this – as if I can sit here and complain that Thor’s character feels underdeveloped or that I didn’t understand Odin’s motivation for acting as he did It is after all from the 13th century written by someone we might characterize as an Icelandic warlord – and yet as removed as I am it’s still fascinating The book is genuinely funny at times and the stories of the Norse gods and goddesses have a sense of humor to them that even the Greek myths can often miss The first book is a kind of Norse catechism where a traveler is shown around Asgard and Midgard and has the

    Paperback ☆ Edda Kindle Ì edda mobile, Edda eBookSo after diving headlong into ancient Norse mythology and history by way of the Heimskringla The Poetic Edda and Sagas of Icelanders in turn I've become ever interested in the subject and medieval literature generally There simply isn't enough extant well preserved material to satisfy the desire to know everything often we're left with as many questions as answers The Prose Edda is no

    Paperback ☆ Edda Kindle Ì edda mobile, Edda eBookThe Sigur Rós playlist fittingly is on and we are back in business The army musterer gave mountain haunting ravens their fill The raven got full on she wolf’s prey and spears rang Expectations versus reality You hear the term bandied about all the time and while my experience of it at least in the literature sphere might not have been as extreme as some I feel I’m coming closer to understanding that concept having finished the Edda I wasn’t expecting to give this such an average rating medieval Iceland and Norse myth? Sounds like a perfect blend like those Christmas peppermint hot chocolates they used to do at Starbucks but things started to go downhill after the story based Skaldskaparmal devolved into what appeared to be just another ordinary textbook What saved this one from a lower rating was the first 100 pages or so and some of those morb

    Paperback ☆ Edda Kindle Ì edda mobile, Edda eBookI’ve been meaning to read both this and the Poetic Edda for a while now and starting the Icelandic Sagas was just the kick in the pants I needed to do it I felt like I could use some cultural context and Snorri here provides it in spades Norse mythology is fascinating in that it represents a belief system that was actually practiced not so long ago relatively speaking Rome officially converted in the early 300s and I think that most of Europe outside the empire was at least nominally Christian by the 7th century or so So the fact that Scandinavia remained pagan until after the 1st millennium and probably much longer than that in remote areas makes it rather unique There is a fun contrast between the grand designs and personalities of Norse mythology Namely the Norse understanding of the cosmos is beautiful and elegant and its gods and other characters are rather not Their construct of the universe centers around the tree Yggdrasil the branches and roots o
