Description

The tales of the Norse gods, of the giants, demons, trolls and dwarves, still have the power to fascinate more than a thousand years after they were first told. Here are the stories of the one-eyed god Odin, the all-seeing, who from his throne in Asgard the home of the gods, has to prepare for Ragnarok, the final conflict between good and evil. There are tales too of Tyr the god of war, of the cunning Loki, of Thor the mighty thunder god and a host of others. These retellings of the old tales are given extra dramatic perspective by the music of Mahler, Grieg, Smetana. They come to life as never before.

  • (4/5)
    Interesting telling of the Norse mythos, starting with the period before the gods and ending with Ragnarok. It includes (mostly) chronological tellings of the most pertinent stories, including Idun and the Golden Apples, how Thor got Mjolnir, various skirmishes against the giants, and the life-story of Loki's son, Fenrir.
