Here are thirty-two classic myths that bring the Viking world vividly to life. The mythic legacy of the Scandinavians includes a cycle of stories filled with magnificent images from pre-Christian Europe. Gods, humans, and monstrous beasts engage in prodigious drinking bouts, contests of strength, greedy schemes for gold, and lusty encounters. The Norse pantheon includes Odin, the wisest and most fearsome of the gods; Thor, the thundering powerhouse; and the exquisite, magic-wielding Freyja. Their loves, wars, and adventures take us through worlds both mortal and divine, culminating in a blazing doomsday for gods and humans alike. These stories bear witness to the courage, passion, and boundless spirit that were hallmarks of the Norse world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Warum bebt die Erde? Wie entstanden Ebbe und Flut? Wie kam die Poesie in unsere Welt? Neil Gaiman erzählt die nordischen Sagen und Mythen neu, mit Witz und Sinnlichkeit, voller Zuneigung und Neugierde. Wir machen Bekanntschaft mit dem mächtigen Odin, reisen mit Thor und seinem Hammer durch die neun nordischen Welten, sind bezaubert von den Göttern und entsetzt von mancher Skrupellosigkeit. Machen Sie sich die Sagen zu eigen, erzählen Sie sie weiter, an den langen kalten Winterabenden, in den lauen Sommernächten. Nach der Lektüre werden Sie selbst die Wolken mit anderen Augen betrachten.
