Norse myths are chock full with stories of heroism, gods, giants, dwarfs, along with strong elements of shamanism, pagan ritual, sorcery and shape-changing. With commentary by Maria Kvilhaug, this volume two book is a collection of Old Norse medieval texts concerning the gods Thor and Loki. It contains translations of six Edda poems, three Skaldic poems and all the relevant passages from Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda. Maria's ability to use her skills in philology shines a light on the texts as she extracts hidden meaning with the lore. Discover the myths that uncover a strong root to animistic understandings of the world in which these stories were told, revealing a old world that was filled with elements of shape-shifting, sorcery and shamanistic style practices to our current, new world.
