Summary

In Norse Mythology and Runes, this book depicts the main Norse pantheon as follows: Odin, the highest of the mighty, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, extremely powerful but not the wisest of gods; and Loki, Odin's blood brother and a trickster and unrivalled manipulator.

This book relates the stories in the form of a novelistic arc, beginning with the creation of the mythical nine worlds and progressing through the adventures of deities, dwarfs, and giants. When Thor's hammer is stolen, he must disguise himself as a woman - a difficult task given his beard and voracious appetite - in order to reclaim it. More moving is the story of how the blood of Kvasir, the wisest of gods, is transformed into a mead that infuses drinkers with poetry. Ragnarok, the dusk of the gods and the birth of a new time and people, is the culmination of the job.
